Mynydd Gelliwastad

This old tune dates back to the 1890s. There are a few variants from all over southern Wales under different titles. Mynydd Gelliwastad is a mountain just outside Swansea, between Ynysforgan & Graig Cefn Parc

That’s a good song to practice triplets with.

Re: Mynydd Gelliwastad

could be. i play it quite plain on the flute. the first f in the b part i often use a triplet. the fs in bar four sometimes too. it depends on which instrument it’s played on i suppose, but i like the long notes on the flute in the second part - they can be phrased nicely with breath…
