[Gwalchmai] Born: 1827, Bryngrugog, Montgomeryshire, Wales. Died: September 17, 1870, Rhuthyn, Wales. Buried: Baptist cemetery, Rhuthyn, Wales. Jones’ parents were so poor they could only give him a year’s schooling. Therefore he spent his boyhood learning all he could about music. Before he was 20 years old, he published a few psalm tunes under the title Y Perganiedydd (The Sweet Singer). From this effort he earned sufficient funds to attend college in London. He is also remembered as a singing teacher at Rhuthyn. His works include: Y Perganiedydd, 1847 --www.hymntime.com/tch/ Go to person page >
