Welcome to The Calon Lân Society
This is the website dedicated to promoting and preserving the history and heritage of the internationally important hymn Calon Lân. Calon Lân is often regarded as Wales' second National anthem. This includes promoting the life and works of its writer Daniel James Gwyrosydd and the composer of the beloved tune John Hughes. We are a newly formed society promoting this great Welsh hymn and the men who brought it into being.
The centenary since the death of Daniel James is on 16th March 2020, as a Society we felt it would be improper to not commemorate this historic day. Working with local schools and the community we are hoping to achieve several projects to make sure Calon Ln remains prominent across the world.
Since our founding we have had a great deal of success including being featured on Wales Online, The South Wales Evening Post, Your Mag and Swansea Bay TV. Our Society was even mentioned and commended in the Chamber of the Welsh Assembly when Mike Hedges chose to draw attention to the work of our society.
