sian, west wales Welsh yw? (42) RE: Welsh yw? 06 May 11


Ah, right. Beloved by rugby crowds throughout Wales. Composed by John Hughes (1872-1914) - also a Swansea lad. Tune made it big in the 1904-05 Revival along with the words. The words are also sung to the tune Blaenwern which is mostly associated in English congregational singing with "Love Divine, All Loves Excelling" I guess. That one's composed by William Rowlands (1860-1937), a Pembrokeshire native but who taught school in Treforys ... and so the threads draw together ...

Chris, the first 'a' in Calon La^n is more like in 'apple'. You're right about the tune being often used for protest lyrics - to this day, in fact. The 87.87 tunes make good vehicles.
