0:06:090:06:13

0:06:130:06:16

0:06:160:06:18

-..he's fast making a name

-for himself as a singer.

0:06:180:06:22

-# The Lord is my shepherd;

-I shall not want

0:06:340:06:46

-# He makes me

-to lie down in green pastures

0:06:480:07:02

-# He leads me

-beside the still waters

0:07:020:07:18

-# The Lord is my shepherd

0:07:180:07:26

-# Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

0:07:260:07:33

0:07:350:07:41

0:09:510:10:05

-# The Lord is my shepherd;

-I shall not want

0:10:070:10:22

-# He makes me

-to lie down in green pastures

0:10:220:10:37

-# He leads me

-beside the still waters

0:10:370:10:57

-# The Lord is my shepherd

0:10:570:11:06

-# Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh #

0:11:060:11:20

-I'm joined by Tom Morris, treasurer

-and chapel elder in Capel Seion.

0:11:320:11:36

-We're next to Pistyll Rhaeadr

-in all its glory.

0:11:360:11:40

-There's a connection

-between the waterfall...

0:11:410:11:44

-..and one of Seion's

-earliest ministers.

0:11:440:11:46

-Yes indeed.

0:11:470:11:49

-Capel Seion has had

-numerous minsters over the years.

0:11:490:11:53

-It used to belong

-to the Wesleyans....

0:11:530:11:56

-..and the minister

-would change regularly.

0:11:560:11:59

-One of the most

-well-known nationally...

0:11:590:12:02

-..was Reverend Tegla Davies.

0:12:020:12:04

-He was a minister in Seion

-and lived in Llanrhaeadr...

0:12:040:12:08

-..precisely 100 years ago,

-during World War I.

0:12:090:12:12

-He wrote many of his novels,

-or surely started writing them...

0:12:120:12:17

-..while he was a minister

-in Llanrhaeadr.

0:12:170:12:20

-Hunangofiant Tomi,

-Nedw, Gwr Pen y Bryn.

0:12:200:12:23

-The most well-known he wrote here

-was Tir y Dyneddon.

0:12:230:12:27

-When Tegla

-lived in Llanrhaeadr in 1917...

0:12:270:12:31

-..there was a very harsh winter.

0:12:310:12:35

-It was so harsh,

-the waterfall froze.

0:12:350:12:39

-240 feet and it was frozen solid.

0:12:390:12:43

-That inspired Tegla to write

-the fantasy novel Tir y Dyneddon...

0:12:430:12:50

-..about fairies with

-the frozen waterfall as a backdrop.

0:12:500:12:55

-Tegla Davies was renowned

-in his own right...

0:12:560:12:59

-..but the area's most famous son

-was William Morgan.

0:12:590:13:02

-He became a bishop later in life.

0:13:020:13:05

-William Morgan was the

-parish priest between 1578 and 1595.

0:13:050:13:13

-During the first decade

-of his stay here...

0:13:130:13:17

-..he translated

-the entire Bible into Welsh.

0:13:170:13:21

-Without his hard work...

0:13:210:13:23

-..you and I wouldn't be

-speaking Welsh as we know it today.

0:13:230:13:29

-I'm astounded how he managed

-to complete such a masterpiece here.

0:13:290:13:34

-How much do we know of his time

-in Llanrhaeadr?

0:13:340:13:37

-In all honesty, he translated the

-Bible despite living in Llanrhaeadr.

0:13:390:13:44

-He incensed a member of the gentry

-in a neighbouring parish, Llansilin.

0:13:440:13:50

-Ifan Meredydd, Lloran Uchaf.

0:13:500:13:52

-There was a great falling out

-between both...

0:13:520:13:56

-..throughout the time

-William Morgan lived in the parish.

0:13:560:14:00

-William Morgan

-walked extensively...

0:14:010:14:03

-..which comes

-as no surprise in this area.

0:14:030:14:06

-Legend has it that he translated

-in a particular place.

0:14:060:14:13

-He had a summer house just above

-the vicarage in Llanrhaeadr...

0:14:130:14:19

-..looking down on the village.

0:14:190:14:22

-He would spend long hours there

-working in peace...

0:14:220:14:25

-..away from the likes

-of Ifan Meredydd, Lloran Uchaf.

0:14:260:14:32

-It is said he carried a pistol

-under his coat...

0:14:320:14:35

-..because he feared the people

-of Lloran.

0:14:360:14:38

-Next, a performance.

0:17:330:17:35

-Here's Sian James to sing

-Rho Im Yr Hedd.

0:17:360:17:38

-# Grant me the peace

0:17:460:17:50

-# Of which the world knows nothing

0:17:510:17:57

-# The heavenly peace

0:17:570:18:02

-# Which came from divine pain

0:18:030:18:09

-# When angry waves

0:18:100:18:14

-# On my weak soul are beating

0:18:150:18:21

-# It's quiet near the cross

0:18:220:18:28

-# Where He was slain

0:18:280:18:36

-# Grant us a taste of peace

0:18:460:18:51

-# Which helps us labour

0:18:520:18:58

-# In heaven's tasks

0:18:580:19:04

-# In spite of grievous pain

0:19:040:19:10

-# No need for fear

0:19:110:19:16

-# As we come daily safer

0:19:160:19:22

-# Closer to God

0:19:230:19:27

-# However harsh the strain

0:19:270:19:36

-# Oh, for the peace

0:19:460:19:51

-# Which floweth like a river

0:19:510:19:57

-# Through God's estate

0:19:580:20:02

-# Below the trees of heaven

0:20:020:20:09

-# The angel's peace

0:20:090:20:14

-# He's promised to deliver

0:20:150:20:21

-# Peace which will be

0:20:220:20:25

-# For us

0:20:260:20:28

-# A quiet Amen #

0:20:280:20:37

-Our final hymn is Ynot Arglwydd

-Gorfoleddwn Yn Dy Gariad Llawenhawn.

0:20:550:21:01

-I hope you've enjoyed this visit

-to Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant.

0:21:010:21:06

-Join us again next week.

0:21:070:21:09
