Gwenynen Gwent (Busy Bee of Gwent)


This tune is named after Lady Augusta Hall, otherwise known as Lady Llanofer ( 1802-1896) who was a very influential patron of Welsh folk customs and arguably did much to shape our current understanding of them. Her nickname was 'the Bee of Gwent'.
In this arrangement I liked the idea of a bee buzzing around the tune and so the rapid accompaniment part should be played quietly and in a humming sort of way, weaving around the melody but keeping beneath it all the time.
