Answering my own questions:
According to the Vox Pictures clip on YouTube.
“Written by Amy Wadge and performed by Ela Hughes for the television series Un Bore Mercher / Keeping Faith produced by Vox Pictures for S4C.”

Of the several places I could have left this, I have randomly selected this thread.

Don’t know if it’s been too long since you posted this for you to receive replies. . . The translation in the album jacket (I know, I know, a CD!) is as follows:

Hyddgen

So silent the slopes this evening
From Hyddgen to Darren Bwlchgwyn
A thick haze-like shroud o’er the landscape
From the Garn to the lake set within
Not a sound disturbs the brown curlew
As it cries from the mist ‘bove the moor
While the sheep graze still on the hillside
By the Covenant Stones of Glyndwr

Hyddgen, once you had your hour
When the sounds of triumph echoed throughout your land
The sounds of triumph throughout your land

Not a soldier is seen now
From Hyddgen to Darren Bwlchgwyn
The coarse grass of centuries grew there
To hide the blood of our kin
But where once his banner fluttered
On the peak of Pumlomon Fawr
The rocks still testify up there
That Hyddgen had its hour

Did you ever spend time up on Hyddgen
Or walk on Darren Bwlchgwyn
To experience the pride of the mountain
Whose defender great Owain had been?
Did you feel that tumultuous excitement?
Heard the bugler’s heart-warming stand?
It still calls you back to the battle
To free yourself and your land

Hyddgen, once you had your hour
When the sounds of triumph echoed throughout your land
The sounds of triumph throughout your land

Powerful stuff!

Hi, does anyone know a good website to find Welsh song lyrics?
I like the song Dawnsia by Fleur de Lys, but I can’t understand some parts because the background music sometimes drowns out the vocals or would it bother anyone if I posted the lyrics I understand so far so that someone can correct/fill in the blanks?
