  • Ar Log: Y Deryn Pur - The Gentle Dove

    4:25

    This traditional Welsh tune is usually translated as “O Gentle Dove”, even if a more literal translation would probably be “The Pure Bird”.
    Ar Log, one of the best Welsh Folk Groups recorded this very beautiful lovesong.
    Y Deryn Pur
    (The Gentle Dove)

    Y deryn pur â'r adain las
    Bydd i mi'n was dibrydar
    O! brysur brysia at y ferch
    Lle rhois i'm serch yn gynnar
    Dos di ati, dywed wrthi
    Mod i'n wylo'r dwr yn heli
    Mod i'n irad am ei gwelad
    Ac o'i chariad yn ffaelu â cherddad, O!
    Duw faddeuo'r hardd ei llun
    Am boeni dyn mor galad!

    Pan o'wn yn hoenus iawn fy hwyl
    Ddiwrnod gwyl yn gwylio
    Canfyddwn fenyw lana' rioed
    Ar ysgafn droed yn rhodio.
    Pan y'i gwelais syth mi sefais
    Yn fy nghalon mi feddyliais
    Wele ddynes lana'r deyrnas
    A'i gwên yn harddu'r oll o'i chwmpas
    Ni fynnwn gredu un dyn byw
    Nad oedd hi ryw angyles!

    English

    O gentle dove with wings so blue
    Fly quickly to my lady
    And take to her a message true
    While in her garden shady
    Go to her and say I love her
    And am trying to discover
    How to meet her, fondly greet her
    But if my love should fail to please her
    May God forgive her beautiful face
    I know that I must leave her.

    With heart so gay one happy day
    I walked with step so sprightly
    The loveliest girl I'd ever seen
    Came tripping there so lightly
    On her beauty so amazing
    I could only stand there gazing
    Of the fairest, she the rarest
    Her smile make all around her shining
    She was an angel to my eyes
    And for her love I'm pining.

Mae’r grŵp wedi teithio a pherfformio ar draws ynysoedd Prydain, Ewrop, Gogledd a De America gan hyrwyddo cerddoriaeth a chaneuon Cymru. Dyma berfformiad o’r gân ‘Dadl Dau’ ar lwyfan y Noson Lawen.

    Ar Log played an important part in the history of Welsh music by being the first professional band to attract the attention of audiences on an international scale. The group have travelled and performed across the UK, Europe, North and South America. Here they perform the folk song ‘Dadl Dau’ on the Noson Lawen. ​

  • The Fair Bird on the Hammered Dulcimer by Bryce Morrison

    1:55

    As the title suggests, this is a Welsh tune. “Deryn” (“Dare” + “In”) means bird and “Pur” (“Peer”) can be translated as “Pure” (or “Sincere”?), though I was originally taught this by Jeannette Sheeran with the title “Fair Bird,” so that is how I know it as.

    It’s played like a Waltz, and I am used to giving it the feel of a lullaby, which I do here, though as the following lyrics could suggest, it’s more of a love song than a lullaby.

    PS: While reading the Welsh, listen along to the first verse here:

    P.P.S.: For the second to last line (“Duw faddeuo’r hardd ei llun”), I’m used to a long pause twice on that line (at “Duw” and “hardd”). You might notice that on my instrumental version.

    Y Deryn Pur

    Y deryn pur â’r adain las
    Bydd i mi’n was dibrydar
    O! brysur brysia at y ferch
    Lle rhois i’m serch yn gynnar
    Dos di ati, dywed wrthi
    Mod i’n wylo’r dwr yn heli
    Mod i’n irad am ei gwelad
    Ac o’i chariad yn ffaelu â cherddad, O!
    Duw faddeuo’r hardd ei llun
    Am boeni dyn mor galad!

    Pan o’wn yn hoenus iawn fy hwyl

    Canfyddwn fenyw lana’ rioed
    Ar ysgafn droed yn rhodio.
    Pan y’i gwelais syth mi sefais

    The Gentle Dove

    O gentle dove with wings so blue
    Fly quickly to my lady
    And take to her a message true
    While in her garden shady
    Go to her and say I love her
    And am trying to discover
    How to meet her, fondly greet her
    But if my love should fail to please her
    May God forgive her beautiful face
    I know that I must leave her.

    With heart so gay one happy day
    I walked with step so sprightly
    The loveliest girl I’d ever seen
    Came tripping there so lightly
    On her beauty so amazing
    I could only stand there gazing
    Of the fairest, she the rarest
    Her smile make all around her shining
    She was an angel to my eyes
    And for her love I’m pining.

    Mary Hopkin sings a beautiful old Welsh song called Y Deryn Pur. This is my first attempt to post a video so I apologise to all those professionals out there.

    This is a song that Mary loved, and a beautiful live version of this can be heard on her CD Live at the Royal Festival Hall via her website at

    Recollections a NEW CD now available via Mary Hopkin Music
