Thread Name: Origins: All Through The Night / Ar Hyd Y Nos
Subject: RE: All Through The Night (another version)
I go to a song circle on Saturdays. I started going before I began taking Welsh lessons. A little, old lady with Welsh ancestors always asked for this song. We sang the lullaby lyrics.
Having learned some Welsh now, mainly from the Beeb, I attempted Ar Hyd Y Nos yn Cymraeg last month. (4.5)
Tomorrow, I hope to try "Myfanwy," after listening to the great Mabsant version. I'm letting the group sing the flowery English translation and I'll do the Welsh ("Pa ham mae dicter......").
But I would rather not sing about times past or barnyard or other animals, etc., and especially no minor keys. Not that this is bad, it just is not for this group.
I am working on "Lleucu Llywd" for May.
Any other suggestions for bouncy Welsh songs like "Lleucu" for our group singing?
