An article on the work by Ann Griffiths is in preparation - expected to be available October 2012.

In the meantime here is a note, by Ann Griffiths, from the CD: John Thomas: Welsh Music for Voice & Harps

The duo Souvenir du Nord is dedicated to John Thomas's Welsh-born patron, student and sometime duo partner, Mrs Lucy of Charlecote Park, whom he met in 1853. The following autumn he undertook a continental tour which took him as far as St Petersburg, which is where he heard the tunes used in this duo. One of the first performances of the new work, with John Bilson Binfield playing second harp, was given in Paris at the Salle Henri Herz on 30 March 1854.
