-Montgomery

0:03:280:03:31

-..in terms

-of the hymn tune and the words.

0:03:320:03:35

-It's a delightful hymn of praise,

-isn't it?

0:03:350:03:39

-In order to achieve the smoothness,

-there is a single beat in the bar.

0:03:400:03:44

-We'll sing

-the final verse in unison.

0:03:450:03:48

-In complete unison.

0:03:480:03:50

-"Er maint y daioni a roddi mor hael

-mae digon i'w gael."

-with the hymn tune St Garmon.

0:06:090:06:13

-repetition of the second line...

0:06:180:06:22

-"Rho dy fendith, Rho dy fendith

-"Ar y flwyddyn hon."

0:06:260:06:27

-The words are repeated often.

0:06:280:06:31

-In the second verse I'd like the

-women to sing the first couplet...

0:06:310:06:36

-..in unison...

0:06:360:06:38

-..and I'd like the men to sing

-the second couplet in unison.

0:06:380:06:43

-into four voices for the chorus.

0:06:430:06:48

-I'm sure Albrecht Durer's painting,

-Praying Hands...

0:11:190:11:23

-..is familiar to many of you.

0:11:230:11:26

-Over the years, the painting has

-inspired artists of all kinds...

0:11:260:11:31

-..one of whom was T Rowland Hughes,

-who wrote a poem called Y Darlun.

0:11:310:11:36
