  • Ar Log: Yn Harbwr Corc

    2:58

    'Yn Harbwr Corc' ('In Cork Harbour') is a well known sea shanty from Wales.

    This version is from a recording made by the popular Cardiff folk group 'Ar Log'
    ('On Hire') :

    Un o ganeuon y môr mwyaf poblogaidd yng Nghymru ydy 'Yn Harbwr Corc'.
    Cenir y fersiwn hon gan y grŵp 'Ar Log' o Gaerdydd:

    Harbwr Corc (NB: scroll down for English!)

    Yn Harbwr Corc yr oeddwn, ryw fore gyda'r dydd,
    Gyda'r dydd,
O hogia bach, ryw fore gyda'r dydd,

    A phawb oedd yno'n llawen, 'doedd yno neb yn brudd,
    neb yn brudd,
O hogia bach, 'doedd yno neb yn brudd.


    O Rhisiart, medde Morus, a Morus, medde Twm,
    medde Twm,
O hogie bach, a Morus, medde Twm:

    Well inni riffio'r hwylie, cyn del y tywydd trwm,
    tywydd trwm,
O hogie bach, cyn del y tywydd trwm.


    O Twm Co bach a Morus, mae'n bygwth gwynt a glaw,
    gwynt a glaw,
O hogie bach mae'n bygwth gwynt a glaw;

    Daw'r cesyg gwynion allan—a Twm yn ateb 'taw',
    ateb 'taw',
O hogie bach, a Twm yn ateb 'taw'.


    Daw'r gwynt yn ôl i'r gogledd, cawn eto dywydd teg,
    tywydd teg,
O hogie bach, cawn eto dywydd teg;

    A bydd y llong yn cerdded, ag asgwrn yn ei cheg,
    yn ei cheg,
O hogie bach, ag asgwrn yn ei cheg.
    **********************
    Cork Harbour
    *****************
    In Cork Harbour I was, one morning at the dawn, at the dawn,

    O my dear lads, one morning at the dawn,

    And everyone was cheerful, there was no one there who was sad, who was sad,

    O my dear lads, there was no one there who was sad.

    O Richard, said Maurice, and Maurice, he said Tom, he said Tom,

    O my dear lads, and Maurice, he said Tom:

    We'd better reef the sails now, before the storm it comes, storm it comes,

    O my dear lads, before the storm it comes.
    O dearest Tom and Maurice, 'tis threatening wind and rain, wind and rain,

    O my dear lads, 'tis threatening wind and rain.

    The white mares they're coming out—and Tom he answers 'hush', answers 'hush',

    O my dear lads, and Tom he answers 'hush'.

    The wind will veer northwards, soon the weather will be fair, will be fair,

    O my dear lads, soon the weather will be fair;

    And our ship will be moving, with a bone in her teeth, in her teeth,

    O my dear lads, with a bone in her teeth.

    One of the better-known examples of two songs sharing the same melody is the pairing of 'The Salutation', a carol about the annunciation, and 'Bring us in good ale', a drinking song, in a manuscript originating in the monastery of Bury Saint Edmunds, dated c. 1460-90.

  • Corrina Hewats Scottish Harp intermediate course Lesson 4

    26:33

    Irene Meldrum’s – 2/4 pipe march in D major

    This is a fine tune for the harp – it does have lots of five note runs, but with careful placing, these become fun to play. The four parts have repeated phrases running through them, keeping it memorable. I have kept a very simple chordal LH for this one so as not to overpower the tune.

    Download the music

    Corrina Hewat is a Scottish harpist and composer who was awarded Music Tutor of the Year at Na Trads in 2013. She has worked with poet Robin Robertson and has written music for the Dunedin Consort.

  • The Water Kelpie played on cross-strung harp

    2:36

    Performer: Zep Ro Parz. Traditional Isle of Man (manx) tune played on a Stoney End Esabelle cross-strung harp. Recorded with an Android Galaxy S3 phone. The original recording was too noisy, so Audacity software was used to transfer the video mp4 file to original audio as an Audacity project, and then noise reduction was used to eliminate most of the excess noise - this seems to have worked very well. Arrangement was impromptu but I've played this tune many times now.

    A well known 6 part reel very suitable for the harp. Written by G S McLennan during his time in a German prisoner of war camp during World War II, it was inspired by a dripping tap. This arrangement should leave you very open to interpreting it in your own way, taking it faster or slower than the version here (which is at quite a moderate speed for learning purposes).
