Very pretty, Beth. I wish I had heard your version before attempting my own, which I paired with Bugeilio'r Gwenith Gwyn and Cader Idris .  You have more creative chords than I.


Thanks for pointing me to the Welsh medley Dusty - it’s lovely! As to my creative chords, it’s only because I can’t get my fingers round whole chords, so I just look for the melody and some notes that I can reach and that harmonise!

Your play is wonderful, as is the sentiment suggested in the title.  Thank you for sharing this with us, Beth.
