7. Cwm Rhondda (Guide Us, O Thou Great Jehovah)
Despite the obvious Welsh connection on the album - Wales is Bryn's homeland, and a good percentage of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir count themselves as having Welsh roots - this is the first and only song performed in Welsh. It's not just the language that's powerful: full orchestra, church bells and an organ bring the emotive text to life.
