Dyma ‘Codiad yr Hedydd’, sydd yn alaw o lawysgrif Bangor Ms. 2296 sef Llawysgrif Robert Thomas o Gaernarfon, ar dudalen 12 (gweler mwy o wybodaeth am Robert Thomas a’i lawysgrif yma).

Mae hi’n fersiwn o alaw mwy adnabyddus gan David Owen, ‘Codiad yr Ehedydd’ (gweler fersiwn o honno yma ar wefan MeuCymru). Gosododd Ceiriog eiriau i’r dôn.

Dyma’r geiriau sy’n cael eu canu isod yn yr enghraifft o’r alaw a’i recordiwyd ar gyfer y blog. Roedd offerynwyr a chantorion yn chwarae a chanu’r geiriau a’r alaw yn Arbrawf Mawr trac 2014 ar Ynys Môn. Diolch yn fawr iddyn nhw!

This melody is called ‘Codiad yr Hedydd’ which translates to ‘The Rising of the Lark’. This is a melody on page 12 of Bangor Ms. 2296 (Robert Thomas’ manuscript – see more information on Robert Thomas and his manuscript here)

The tune is a version of the a more familiar tune, ‘Codiad yr Hedydd’, by David Owen. (A version of that tune can be seen here on the MeuCymru website). Ceiriog set the words to the tune.

These are the words that are sung in the example of the tune below, which was recorded for the blog. Instrumentalists and singers at trac’s Big Experiment 2014 on Anglesey played the tune and sung the words especially for the blog; a big thank you to them!

  1. Hi Mari,
    You may find some material (and some speculation) of interest regarding this tune in this (http://forums.chiffandfipple.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=66169) old and rather rambling thread on Chiff & Fipple. I’m afraid it’ll take a bit of reading, but it may lead you somewhere and you may even have some answers to the outstanding. unresolved questions?! The thread participants did quite a bit of research. I’d be interested in your (or anyone’s) thoughts…….
    Hwyl,
    Jem
