Ymhlith tyfiant planhigion yr haf, dyma ‘Lily ym mûsg y Drain’, sydd ar dudalen 23 o lawysgrif Bangor 2294 sef Llawysgrif Morris Edwards (gweler mwy o wybodaeth am Morris Edwards a’i lawysgrif yma). Sillafiad cyfoes y teitl fyddai ‘Lili ymysg y Drain’.

Mae fersiwn lleddf o’r alaw yn fwy adnabyddus na hon, a gellir ei chlywed (er enghraifft) gan Jem Hammond yn y fideo yma.

Gallwch fy nghlywed i’n chwarae ‘Lily ym Mûsg y Drain’ ar y ffidil trwy ddilyn y ddolen ar wa waelod y post hwn.

Among blooming plants of summer, this melody is called ‘Lily ym mûsg y Drain‘ which roughly translates to ‘Lily amidst the thorns’. It’s found on page 23 of Bangor Ms. 2294 (Maurice Edwards’ manuscript – see more information on Maurice Edwards and his manuscript here)

A better-known minor key version of this tune exists, played for instance in this video video by Jem Hammond.

You can hear ‘Lily ym mûsg y Drain’ played by me on the fiddle by following the link at the bottom of this post.

Dyma ‘Dime gôch’, sydd yn alaw arall o lawysgrif Bangor Ms. 2294 sef Llawysgrif Maurice Edwards, ar dudalen 25 (gweler mwy o wybodaeth am Maurice Edwards a’i lawysgrif yma).

Mae hi’n alaw fer ond yn brydferth. Mae’r C naturiol yn y cymal cyntaf yn trawsnewid yr alaw.

This melody is called ‘Dime gôch’ which roughly translates to ‘The Red Ha’penny’. This is another melody on page 25 of Bangor Ms. 2294 (Maurice Edwards’ manuscript – see more information on Maurice Edwards and his manuscript here)

This tune is short but sweet. The C natural in the first phrase transforms the melody.
