Commenting on their win on the BBC's Songs of Praise programme, Rhondda AM Leanne Wood said: “I would like to congratulate Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg Llwyncelyn for this magnificent achievement.
"To be crowned the Songs of Praise Junior Young Choir of the Year is a tremendous accolade but it is also a well-deserved one. I have had the privilege of hearing this choir so know just how good they are.
“Their excellence is testament to hours and hours of practice and everyone involved – the pupils and teachers at Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg Llwyncelyn of course but also the parents for their unstinting support - deserves praise for this award.
“I wish the choir all the very best in the forthcoming national Urdd Eisteddfod where they will provide tough competition for any choir.”
