Recitation

Recitation of the set poem " Eifionydd " by R Williams Parry

You can see the text and hear it being recited at: https://youtu.be/NMdE07Zdrfo

Monologue

This is a special category for those wish to focus on their speaking skills. It is purely a verbal category, so you just need to speak your thoughts, in Welsh, and record it on whatever Digital Recorder you have available.

The topic is “ Gwneud Môr a Mynydd ” using the Welsh idiom equivalent to ‘making a mountain out of a molehill’ or a ‘storm in a teacup’ in English. The recording can be up to a maximum of 5 minutes long.

Singing (2 categories)

Traditional SongAberdaron by Cynan

This can be sung by a solo singer, a duet, or a group, accompanied by one instrument. There are two versions of the song for you to listen to here:

https://youtu.be/l9s3h6SzunA - this version is more traditional and sung by Hogia’r Wyddfa

https://youtu.be/aW6BB1kD0Ho - this version is by Bwncath and also shows you the lyrics.

Contemporary Song

This can be a cover version of a modern song, giving it your own interpretation, or an original song that you have written. It can be a solo, or any number of singers, in any style, and there is no limit on the number of accompanying instruments. It’s a fun category where you can be as creative as you like!

For the above singing categories, you can make your recording using whatever Digital Recording system you have available.

Just a little clarification - the Contemporary Song doesn’t have to be related to the overall 'Môr a Mynydd" theme. It’s an open, fun category so go wild :partying_face:
