An Ammanford choir performed at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.

Côr Persain, the choir from Ammanford, sang on Saturday, April 27 at the Women’s Six Nations Wales v Italy match.

It was a big event as it was the first women’s international rugby game to be a standalone event at the home of Welsh Rugby.

The choir joined three others to form a 130-member ensemble led by Dr Haydn James.

They sang fan favourites including Cwm Rhondda, Yma o Hyd, and Calon Lan, accompanied by the Regimental Band of the Royal Welsh, for the 10,500 strong crowd.

The choir's secretary, Rhian, reflected on the performance, highlighting its significance and the challenges faced.

She said: "It was an honour to be chosen to sing.

"Learning the Italian Anthem was a challenge but our ladies practised hard with our MD Huw Morgan and everyone loved the occasion."

Côr Persain MD, Huw Morgan, said: "It was a great honour for the choir to be invited to sing in Cardiff and I am very proud of my ladies. They worked hard to learn nine songs in a short space of time. The singing was great and it was a memorable occasion to sing to a crowd of 10,500.”

Dr Haydn James, the Welsh Rugby Union Musical Director added: "The four choirs worked incredibly well together and along with the Band delivered a sound which just blew me away.  Everyone had clearly worked hard with arrangements which were unfamiliar, especially the Italian Anthem, but sang with such confidence and enthusiasm throughout. All of the smiles made so much difference in every way. - and the Welsh team won!”
