"Diferion Arian" ~ one last ‘Welsh’ contribution, for the moment, a 9/8 for Fiddle Aunt 😉

A version, which I’ll add, can also be found in "The Annual Cambrian Trifles or South Wales Polite Repertory of Country Dances for 1812", by W. Burton Hart. This collection of tunes and country dances was also released as “Y Mân-Dlysau Cymreig / The Cambrian Trifles”, edited by Robin Huw Bowen and published by Cymdeithas Ddawns Werin Cymru / The Welsh Folk Dance Society, 1994…

X:4

…is how I simply found myself wanting to play X:2.
