Some new music from Gruff Rhys has been released on YouTube
I noticed this at the Urdd Eisteddfod. Gwybod pronounced “gooeybod”. Is this “more correct” than how I’ve been saying it?
I think it depends. In some circles it would be regarded as hyper-correct, I think, but I don’t think anyone cares that much.
Gwbod, sometimes even gwbo’, is what I say.
So if you’re doing llefaru, or it fits the meter of the song, fine. Otherwise don’t worry about it!
Really like this.
I came across this song titled “Rhywle” sang by one choir on the album I’ve bought on eMusic however searching for lyrics I found only this preformance on YouTube (without lyrics of course).
Now I’d like to know if the lyrics are somewhere to get.
This is the song originally performed by Barbra Streisand (In English of course)
and I could very well either transcribe the lirics from the Welsh video above or re-translate the original but since this is already translated I’d rather get the original translation in Welsh than do it myself. If I’d do that again I’d feel like discovering warm water again (as we say in Slovenia) .
And this is the performance I was draen by … (I had to put some effort to find this video after I already have written all above …
Thanks for any help…
