An arrangement by Alan Llewelyn Thomas of the well-loved Welsh folk song - Ar lan y môr. English words also on the copy. There are options to shorten the piece should it be necessary to fit within a restricted repertoire in a competition.
Five verses are set in this fully blown arrangement by Alan Llewelyn Thomas. All voice parts share in the melodic interest, and the texture and dynamics gradually build to climax in verse 4, Llawn yw’r môr…(Full the sea…). With a total playing time of 4 mins 45 seconds, this setting is ideal for general concert performance, but it has also includes options to delete certain verses to make the piece an attractive option for competition choirs, working to a time limit. Hence there are 3 options on the score to delete verses without impairing the flow of the music in any way. The total playing time, depending on which option is selected, can reduce the overall playing time to 3.18, 3.32 and 3.42.
