It’s not a hornpipe,more like a reel and you forgot the third part.

By the way how are things over there in the Land Of My Fathers?

If you say it’s a reel Sian I’ll bow to your superior knowledge.I only know the tune from the recording by Yr Hwntws and they take take it a pretty fast pace,but that was recorded a while ago now.Is it played differently in sessions in Wales nowadays?
Hwyl nawr.

Gadzooks,my browser must have been on the blink.When I first opened the page there were only two parts to the tune and I’ve just had another look and now there are three! Gremlins.Apologies.

Thanks for this one - I really love this tune. Already thinking what to play with it!

“Y Lili” / “The Lily” ~ DUPLICATION

But this is a much more together setting of the tune, but there are several other takes on this melody in the comments to the link above, in D an A…

Would this be the very version of Y Lili that is played in the Ffidl album or would it be the other version? Maybe I should learn both.. haha..
