Bryn Terfel on Bardsey Island

Is this Avalon, the Burial Place of King Arthur?

What could be more dream-like than Bryn Terfel, the glorious Welsh baritone, singing a Schubert “lullaby” (as I like to think of it) in a remote Welsh church on a remote Welsh island?
This “Island of the 20,000 saints” is among the places claiming to be the burial site of King Arthur.
Here’s a lovely little clip of the lengths Bryn went to, not only to visit the site, but to get a piano there, along with his stunning “Litany for the Feast of All Souls” (Litanei auf der Fest Alle Seelen( by Schubert.
How appropriate for a piece that has always sounded like a lullaby!
