“Before the scholarship, I got the odd concert every few months or so. I got Conwy Music Festival a couple of times but it was mainly performing in local Eisteddfoddau in village halls and chapels.

“But the Scholarship has changed my life in so many ways.

“The work has been almost constant. After winning it I was asked to sing on a Christmas programme (on S4C) completely unexpectedly and to do a duet with Bryn himself. That was the scariest thing I’ve done.

“I started panicking like crazy, and the song El Nacimiento was also in Spanish and I’d never sung in Spanish before! So I found the Spanish people in my college and said ‘Please go through this with me.”

He added: “It was really daunting because on his album Bryn does it with Mexican tenor Rolando Villazon. And Bryn had just sung it at the Albert Hall with Jose Carreras.

“I was so nervous that after recording it in Cardiff and coming back to the dressing room I realised I’d pulled a muscle in my back.”
