Y Ferch o Blwy Penderyn (The Girl from Penderyn Parish)
This is a Waltz in G. It is also a much recorded love song sung by a love struck young man dreaming of beautiful round -cheeked Gwen, but dying for love and planning to be buried under the yew.
In my second part, I've been influenced by the Welsh 'Cerdd Dant' tradition of improvising a harmony line which often starts half way through a phrase and has its own melodic intergrity.
Live ensemble recording by Llantwit Major tuneclub as part of one day Tunelines workshop November 2017
and duet recording with Abi Hammett as well of course as the tune played through on its own.
