  • Sir Bryn Terfel - "I Believe" - Dreams and Songs

    Sir Bryn Terfel performs "I Believe" by Ervin Drake, Irvin Graham, Jimmy Shirl and Al Stillman, a track featured on his new album, Dreams and Songs".


  • Sir Bryn Terfel - Agustin Lara’s "Granada" - Dreams and Songs

    Agustin Lara’s rumbustious ‘Granada’, a long-time favourite of many an opera star, finds Terfel teaming up with Maltese tenor Joseph Calleja. “I wanted the album to have a defining theme of Britishness,” says Bryn. “You might say what’s the British connection with ‘Granada’? Well it used to be used in TV ads for Granada Television, and that was a song I knew when I was a teenager. All of a sudden I was singing it all over the world, and I once sang it with Jose Carreras. Joseph Calleja sings all over the world too, and this is a little nudge that maybe we can do some concerts together in the future.” Let’s hope they don’t have to wait three years to find a space in the diary.


  • Sir Bryn Terfel - The Golf Song (Golfer's Lament) - Dreams and Songs (Teaser 5)

    When he’s not singing you’ll probably find Sir Bryn Terfel on a golf course, hence ‘The Golfer’s Lament’, where he’s joined by fellow-countryman Rob Brydon for a rousing romp around the back nine. “You can imagine Rob crossing outside Abbey Road studios like the Beatles, when we recorded this,” says Sir Bryn. “We sang that song maybe 12 times, with Rob trying to put me off – he mimicked voices and does a wonderful Elvis Presley impersonation, but when the red recording light is on, he always strives to be better. I think it describes our love of golf to a tee.”


  • Sir Bryn Terfel - The Golf Song (Golfer's Lament) - Dreams and Songs (Teaser 3)

    ‘The Golfer’s Lament’ was originally written for the American baritone John Charles Thomas, a big star in the 1930s and ‘40s who has been an inspiration to Sir Bryn Terfel because of the way he would mix operatic material with popular songs.


  • Sir Bryn Terfel - The Golf Song (Golfer's Lament) - Dreams and Songs (Teaser 1)

    Comedian and fellow Welshman Rob Brydon joins Bryn on the duet ‘The Golfer’s Lament’, a light-hearted tale of life on the fairway. The rousing romp captures their cheeky sense of humour and their shared love of the sport – as Bryn says, “I think it describes our love of golf to a tee.” Rob adds, “It was an honour and a thrill to sing with Sir Bryn, and what better than a song celebrating my sporting shortcomings!”


  • Bryn Terfel - Amazing Grace - Dreams and Songs (Teaser)

    After five years, Sir Bryn Terfel is back with a collection of his favourite tunes recorded in brand new orchestral versions. The great Welsh bass-baritone enlisted a host of impressive guest stars to duet with him on his new album ‘Dreams and Songs’. Listen to "Amazing Grace" with soprano Danielle de Niese.
