Tune of the Day: Y Deryn Pur

Traditional Welsh slow air

The title of this traditional Welsh tune is usually translated as “O Gentle Dove”, even if a more literal translation would probably be “The Pure Bird”.

O gentle dove with wings so blue
Fly quickly to my lady
And take to her a message true
While in her garden shady
Go to her and say I love her

Thanks to Ronald for suggesting this tune!
