Welsh music legends John Cale and Karl Jenkins have been honoured in the Queen's Birthday Honours List.


The former Velvet Underground man is made an OBE while the classical composer, already an OBE, is made a CBE.

Also honoured, with an MBE, is the accompanist with Côr Meibion Y Traeth, Gres Pritchard. She has accompanied the Anglesey choir for 40 years and has been recognised for her sevices to the music on the island.
