about

Morwnad yr Ehedydd [Death of the Lark] /Titrwm Tatrwm [Pitter Patter] /Abergenni -trad.Welsh
We were struck by the interpretation of this tune of an old folk song by Anne Marie Summers and Helen Wilding, and intertwine our version with the song by David Thomas (Dafydd Ddu Eryri, l759-l822). Black David of Snowdon was a famous poet who established literary societies, teaching the traditional meters. Collected by Playford, Abergenni is from the unusual Welsh stately/courtly realm.

lyrics

Titrwm, tatrwm,
Gwen lliw'r wy,
Lliw'r meillion mwy rwy'n curo,
Mae'r gwynt yn oer oddi ar y llyn
O flodyn y dyffryn deffro.
Chwyth y tân, mi gynnith toc,
Mae hi'n ddrycinog heno.

Os ymhell o'm gwlad yr af
Pa beth a wnaf a'm geneth?
Pa run a'i mynd a hi efo mi
Ai gadael hi mewn hiraeth?
Hedd fy nghalon o bob man
I fryniau a phantiau Pentraeth.

Weithiau'n Llundain, weithiau yng Nghaer
Yn gweithio'n daer amdani,
Weithiau yn gwasgu fy mun mewn cell
Ac weithiau ymhell oddi wrthi:
Mi gofleidiwn flodau'r rhos
Pe bawn i'n agos ati.

Titrwm, tatrwm,
Gwen lliw'r wy,
Lliw'r meillion mwy rwy'n curo,
Mae'r gwynt yn oer oddi ar y llyn
O flodyn y dyffryn deffro.
Chwyth y tân, mi gynnith toc,
Mae hi'n ddrycinog heno
