Track Listing
  1. Soon and Very Soon - Written By Andrae Crouch, this spiritual shows the softer side of the Orpheus.
  2. Aberystwyth - This traditional hymn tune by Dr Joseph Parry, arranged by Dr Alwyn Humphreys sung in Welsh and English sums up the feeling of returing to God at time of death -"Cover my defenceless head, with the shadow of thy wing."
  3. Stars - Taken from the hit show "Les Miserables" this is the first track from the CD by one of our first guest soloist X Factor's Rhydian Roberts

  6. To Where You Are - The title track of the CD holds a very special meaning for the Orpheus being very comforting to those experiencing the loss of someone special. "Who can say for certain? Maybe you're still here, I feel you all around me, your memory's so clear"
  7. The Easter Hymn - Cavalleria Rusticana - The rousing and dramatic "Easter Hymn" features the second of our soloist's 2009 MOCSA competition winner Catrin Aur. A lady with a big future.

  9. Sunshine in My Soul - Another uplifting track showing the lighter side of the Orpheus.
  10. How Great Thou Art - This evergreen hymn is alway popular with young and old alike, recently voted one of the nation's favourite hymns - never better than when sung by the Orpheus in full voice.
  11. Bui Doi - The second piece featuring Rhydian. Literally translated as the "Dust of Life" about the street children of - Vientam following the Vietnam war, potentially the most emotionally charged piece of the recording.
  12. Mansions of the Lord - This the title track from the 2002 film "We Were Soldiers" ...Fathers, Brothers, Husbands, Sons. A reminder of the people behind the soldiers.
  13. Mor Hawddgar Yw Dy Bebyll - A setting of Psalm 84 "How Lovely Are Thy Dwellings" composed by the South West Wales Composer Eric Jones and originally arranged by him for the Orpheus.
  14. A Red Red Rose - An unusual setting of the words of Robbie Burns, suited perfectly to the sound of the MOC.
  15. You'll Never Walk Alone - The final piece featuring Rhydian, the words of which require no explanation.
  16. Canwn Moliannwn - A medley of four Welsh hymn tunes arranged for the 75th Anniversary by Joy Amman Davies. This selection culminates in the rousing "Craig Y Oesoedd" The perfect ending.
