Myfanwy is a Welsh love song I could listen to for a thousand years.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ysMlIZPoSU
Here’s another rendition by Ryan Davies who called it “the greatest love song that has ever been written”:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gH3yqBW1AJ4
To get back on topic (!), Donny Osmond, Mormon, also performs it! Turns out he has Welsh roots. He sings some of it in English, first time I’ve ever understood the words.
From the web site: “Myfanwy is a song composed by Dr Joseph Parry from Merthyr Tydfil in 1875 and Donny Osmond’s family have been connected to Merthyr Tydfil since the 1500’s.His great great great grandfather on his late mother’s side was a surgeon in the Cyfarthfa Iron Works saving many lives.”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6B0V4JnBIEU
(But yeah, sounds better in Welsh, sung by Welsh voices).
