Côr y Gors

Côr y Gors is a unique musical ensemble (with lots of voices) who perform and record songs written for
them by song writer/composer, Nick Jones. They have been ploughing their own harmonic furrow since 2004, in a  coastal village called Borth in mid Wales.

  It is choral music at times, because there are many voices singing in harmony, and the roots in Western choral traditions are undeniable.  However, go a little deeper, and words like choral and choir don't really describe the sound and the music which Côr y Gors makes.
Côr y Gors have performed extensively throughout Wales and elsewhwere too.
They have a repertoire of over 65 songs.
