When You Come to the End of the Day
 
 
Simplicity and sincerity again are evident in every bar of this beautiful 19th-century
Welsh song. It is a credit to Perry that he can perform such inspirational music without
losing any of its credibility. His religious beliefs and devotion to family life are well
known and an inspiration on their own. He always included on his weekly TV show
an inspirational song or two, which fit in perfectly with his own character
and personality.
 
( notes from "The Incomparable Como" Readers Digest UK compilation 1975 )
 
Notes: "The ancient Welsh folk song, "Ar Hyd y Nos" was formerly sung to an English setting,
"Here beneath a willow weepeth poor Mary Ann." It is best known outside Wales today by
the title "All Through the Night"
