Programme Note: The text is based upon St David’s last sermon to his followers, and is typical of the personable faith that he encouraged, particularly his endearment of the little things of life. The text is well known in Wales. The motets follow each other, but may be performed separately. Both motets are also available in a Welsh edition.
