I've never heard it called by that name [Last Mine in the Rhondda] before. Glad to see it's in the DigiTrad as "Farewell to the Rhondda" which is, I believe the real name. Susanne, do you pronounce the name of the valley as "rontha" or "ronda"?? I'm no linguist, but I've understood that the double d in Welsh is pronounced as th in English. I've only heard the song sung with the Anglicized pronunciation. It's a fine song either way!
