Some folks, Ar Log included, mate these two 3/4 tune up and even play them simultaneously, as they both go, A for A & B for B… It’s fun and it works, I promise…

Merch Megan

Can’t remember the name but its published in one of the Welsh Collections from the mid Nineteeth century., I believe it to be fairly old and that it predates the effects of male Voice Choirs, Parry etc etc. The Angels link it with FFairwel marian but we don;’t get asked for Welsh material that often.

"Merch Megan" & "Ffarwel I’r Marian"

Yes, in Cymru too these two are often found together in a set of two or more waltzes…

There was another that was often in the mix but it does not come to mind at the moment…
