-From Hyfrydle Chapel, Holyhead...

0:00:000:00:02

-..at a service to proclaim the 2017

-Anglesey National Eisteddfod...

0:00:020:00:07

-..welcome

-to Dechrau Canu Dechrau Canmol.

-It seems there are at least five

-places called Llanfair on Anglesey.

0:00:410:00:46

-Llanfairpwll may be

-the best-known...

0:00:460:00:49

-..but the most romantic-sounding

-is Llanfair Mathafarn Eithaf.

0:00:490:00:53

-It's the birthplace

-of poet Goronwy Owen...

0:00:530:00:56

-..and he was a curate there

-before he went to America.

0:00:570:01:00

-Another local character, Mair

-Mathafarn, wrote our first hymn.

0:01:000:01:05

-She was one of the pillars

-of Eisteddfod Mon over the years.

0:01:050:01:09

-She was also a faithful member

-at Soar Chapel, Rhos-fawr.

0:01:090:01:13

-It was on the wall of that chapel

-that this peace hymn was first seen.

0:01:130:01:18

-"Arglwydd, cofia blant y gwledydd

-sydd dan ormes heddiw'n byw."

0:01:190:01:23

-The hymn tune is Blaenwern.

0:01:230:01:25

-The executive committee

-of Eisteddfod Mon 1992...

0:04:110:04:15

-..commissioned Dewi Jones

-to write a hymn...

0:04:150:04:18

-..for the hymn tune composition

-competition.

0:04:180:04:21

-The words show

-that it's possible...

0:04:220:04:24

-..to devote all aspects of life

-to the singing of praise...

0:04:240:04:29

-..as emphasized by the

-closing phrases of each verse.

0:04:290:04:35

-The hymn tune is Blaencefn.

0:04:360:04:39

-Edward Cefni Jones

-lived to be a hundred years old.

0:07:210:07:24

-He started preaching as a young man

-at Pisgah Chapel, Rhostrehwfa.

0:07:240:07:29

-At the time, he was

-an apprentice carpenter...

0:07:290:07:32

-..before attending

-the Baptist College in Bangor...

0:07:320:07:36

-..and embarking on a long career

-as a preacher.

0:07:360:07:39

-His works are still sung regularly.

0:07:400:07:42

-No Christmas would be complete...

0:07:420:07:44

-..without singing his translation

-of Away In A Manger...

0:07:450:07:48

-..as well as this next hymn,

-a very familiar resurrection hymn.

0:07:490:07:53

-"Pan oedd Iesu dan yr hoelion."

0:07:530:07:55

-The tune is Coedmor by Dic Jones,

-originally from Morriston.

0:07:550:08:00

-Next, a performance

-by two of the island's choirs...

0:11:580:12:01

-..who have united

-especially for this occasion.

0:12:020:12:05

-Performing Ai Am Fy Meiau I,

-Cor Esceifiog and Adlais.

0:12:050:12:10

-# Ai am fy meiau i

0:12:220:12:27

-# Dioddefodd Iesu mawr

0:12:270:12:31

0:12:570:13:03

-# A dalodd ef yn llawn

0:13:030:13:08

-# Dioddefodd angau loes

0:13:120:13:17

-# Yn ufudd ar y bryn

0:13:170:13:22

-# A'i waed a ylch y galon ddu

0:13:220:13:28

-# Yn lan fel eira gwyn

0:13:280:13:34

-# Bu'n angau i'n hangau ni

0:13:350:13:39

-# Wrth farw ar y pren

0:13:400:13:44

-# A thrwy ei waed y dygir llu

0:13:440:13:50

-# Drwy angau, i'r nefoedd wen

0:13:510:13:56

-# Pan grymodd ef ei ben

0:13:570:14:02

-# Gorchfygodd uffern ddu

0:14:200:14:25

0:14:250:14:31

0:14:320:14:38

-# Drwy ras, i deulu Duw

0:14:380:14:43

-# Gorchfygodd uffern ddu

0:14:440:14:50

-# Gwnaeth ben y sarff yn friw

0:14:510:14:56

-# O'r carchar caeth y dygir llu

0:14:570:15:03

-# Drwy ras, i deulu Duw

-John Roberts, Llanfwrog

-didn't want to be remembered...

0:15:240:15:28

-..as a poet or hymn writer

-but as a preacher.

0:15:280:15:31

-His preaching notes are kept at

-the National Library in Aberystwyth.

0:15:310:15:36

-Over 500 small cards,

-with very careful notes.

0:15:360:15:40

-Had he only written this next hymn,

-he would be considered...

0:15:400:15:45

-..one of the 20th century's

-greatest Welsh hymn writers.

0:15:450:15:49

-This is a hymn

-with which we can all identify.

0:15:490:15:53

-"Pan fwyf yn teimlo'n unig lawer awr

0:15:530:15:56

-"Heb un cydymaith

-ar hyd llwybrau'r llawr."

0:15:560:15:59

-We'll sing the last verse

-in a powerful unison, please...

0:15:590:16:03

-..to convey the certainty

-evoked in the final phrase.

0:16:030:16:08

-This afternoon, I visited the grave

-of Samuel Jonathan Griffith...

0:19:400:19:44

-..at Maeshyfryd cemetery

-here in Holyhead.

0:19:450:19:48

-We know him, of course,

-by his bardic name, Morswyn.

0:19:480:19:51

-The local Welsh-medium school

-is also named after him.

0:19:520:19:55

-Even though his gravestone notes

-that he was 50 years old...

0:19:560:20:00

-..he was actually

-only 43 years old...

0:20:000:20:03

-..when he dropped dead

-on the street in Holyhead.

0:20:030:20:07

-Some newspapers reported

-that he was struck by lightning...

0:20:070:20:11

-..but apparently,

-that wasn't what happened.

0:20:110:20:14

-Morswyn's famous hymn about Craig

-Yr Oesoedd is often compared...

0:20:140:20:19

-..with the English hymn

-Rock Of Ages by Augustus Toplady.

0:20:190:20:23

-But Toplady's rock was on land...

0:20:230:20:27

-..and Morswyn's rock was in the sea,

-near Porth Dafarch.

0:20:270:20:32

-When he mentions cruel storms

-in the second verse...

0:20:320:20:36

-..little did he know

-that he and his wife...

0:20:360:20:39

-..would lose two young children

-shortly afterwards.

0:20:400:20:43

-Sadly,

-because of his premature death...

0:20:440:20:47

-..Morswyn didn't live

-to hear his immortal hymn...

0:20:470:20:51

-..being sung to the tune

-of In Memoriam by Caradog Roberts.

0:20:510:20:55

-It's such a perfect combination.

0:20:550:20:57

-That's our final hymn tonight.

-In Memoriam, Craig Yr Oesoedd.
