Chris in Wheaton Origins: All Through The Night / Ar Hyd Y Nos (52* d) Ar Hyd Y Nos 30 Nov 04


Wow - steeping not sleeping - never noticed either - see the RUS thread.

But, since the song is originally Welsh, wouldn't be better to sing the original lyrics or a translation?

There's a translation of the original Welsh at
http://lyricsplayground.com/alpha/songs/a/arhydynos.shtml

This too says steeping!! But the original song was not a lullaby, but about old age.
I hope that some may like the translation well enough to sing that or there is another web site that has a phonetic translation of the Welsh - or Cymdeithas Madog has recently released a cd of readings and slow singing of Welsh folk song lyrics, including this song.

Hwyl, Chris yn Wheaton
