Have been invited by some Welsh friends to a St David's Day party - leek soup and all that, look you...

Song suggestions anyone? I've been asked to bring the guitar and sing something Welsh, but I can't remember anything except "Cosher Bailey".

So, help please! Preferably not in the Welsh language (a bit beyond me, especially for singing), not too muc Harry Secombe-ish warbling and complete with lyrics, chords and background notes if poss. Not asking much am I?

Thanks in advance,

Fossil

Max Boyce. Honest. Apart from the humourous stuff, he did a nice song, "Swansea Town" which is all warm and fuzzy. Llwyn Onn / The Ash Grove is in the Digitrad, as is All Through the Night and Bells of Rhymney. Somewhere in there is the Woad Song too. All good choices.

Nigel spearheaded a drive to translate Cân y Melinydd
but I don't think it's been 'harvested' yet.

Hope this helps.

Siân:

You seem to be having a problem with your characters. "â" is easiest done by typing 131 on the numeric pad while holding down the "Alt" key.
I see you've included a "¢" in your name. Is that to stop us saying "there's no cents in Siân"

Cheers

Nigel

ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT

Sleep, my child, and peace attend thee
All through the night
Guardian angels God will send thee
All through the night
Soft the drowsy hours are creeping
Hill and dale in slumber sleeping
I my loving vigil keeping
All through the night

While the moon her watch is keeping
All through the night
While the weary world is sleeping
All through the night
O'er thy spirit gently stealing
Visions of delight revealing
Breathes a pure and holy feeling
All through the night

Though I roam a minstrel lonely
All through the night
My true harp shall praise sing only
All through the night
Love's young dream, alas, is over
Yet my strains of love shall hover
Near the presence of my lover
All through the night

Hark, a solemn bell is ringing
Clear through the night
Thou, my love, art heavenward winging
Home through the night
Earthly dust from off thee shaken
Soul immortal shalt thou awaken
With thy last dim journey taken
Home through the night

Reads fine on my machine, Nige! Hmmm. I'm using the new accents softward from Draig Technology. I guess it looks different if you don't have it? You could just call me Madame Sin ... but only if you can keep a straight face.
