Thread Name: Lyr Add: Myfanwy (Welsh song by Joseph Parry)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Myfanwy (Welsh song by Joseph Parry)
I think a version by Cerys Matthews on TV was the one that enlightened me. She described the story then sang with her own guitar as accompaniment. Not as polished and boringly smooth as a Welsh choir. But given the subject, the plaintiff rough edges are what made it for me. Knowing the story, the Welsh words were no hindrance to understanding.
