PreLambeth FilmFest: Name that Tune


Guess Americans aren't the only ones who love their land with gusto. But of course, this land called Cymru is known for its robust and enthusiastic singing and public speaking (indeed, as it is, many of our own ancestors who settled in America originally came from this land, which may explain a lot) and it continues to be known as "the land of song." Y Ddraig Goch ddyry gychwyn.

Looks like their people haven't lost their gusto, which might be a good thing to keep in mind in the days ahead.

Ahhh...the Welsh National Anthem. One of the most stirring and beautiful anthems in the world. Brings tears to my eyes when I see it sung in the stadiums like this. Thanks for posting it BB.

An English song to the same tune:

Whales, Whales, jolly great fishes are whales.
They swim in the sea
We have them for tea
Oh jolly great fishes are whales
