For guitar solo in D Major.

This is an arrangement of two beautiful Welsh folk songs;

Y Deryn Pur (The Pure Bird), and

Y Enter Gadd ei Gwrthod (The Girl who was Refused)

These arrangements are inspired by a Welsh singer Sîan James. Both songs are included in her CD "Pur" (2000 - BOS Records RBOS001), a recording of Welsh folk song collection accompanied by herself on Welsh Harp.

The songs are well-known in Wales but not at all popular in the rest of the world.
