3 o GANEUON (3 Little Welsh Songs)
High or medium voice, piano
5 minutes
Three Little Welsh Songs - for high or medium voice  piano. The three texts are englynion, perhaps the Welsh-language equivalent of the haiku - these poems are very compact, each only four lines long, but they are packed full of vivid imagery and beautiful symbolism. Each poem features a shared rhyme at the end of each line, and the language is very playful with words smashed together to form new ideas. 

Lliwiau'r Hydref - Autumn Colours
Yr Hebog - The Hawk
Cyfnos - Twilight
Premiered by Esyllt Thomas and Zoë Smith at Eisteddfod Genedlaethol 2020.
