About this work & Performance Notes

Three Welsh Songs
Ar Lan Y Môr
Lisa Lân
Calon Lân
For Voice and Harp


I arranged these three songs for the wedding of Will Harrison and Harriet Edmonds in the beautiful church of St Hywyn at Aberdaron on June 16th 2014, where I was privileged to accompany the exquisite singing of the soprano Daisy Evans.

Although I have only included the Welsh words under the notes of the melodies, I have provided English translations at the end of each song. They're not literal translations, but were created for any non-Welshspeaking singers who would like to perform the songs.

Traditional folk songs often seem to appear in several different versions, sometimes with slightly different words, sometimes with an additional verse or two. Curiously, it's Calon Lân (which is the only one of the three that isn't an anonymous traditional folk song) that seems to have the most variants. Apologies to anyone who is more familiar with different words in any of these three songs: please do substitute the words of "your" versions, if you prefer...

You'll notice that I haven't included any dynamics or other expression marks in the music. This isn't laziness or negligence - I just didn't want to be prescriptive and dictate to you how you ought to be performing the songs. There's such a lot of scope for expressive playing and singing, so please be as imaginative (or idiosyncratic) as you like!
