Away, my herd, under the green oak
Come every shepherd with his love
The break of day
I gaze upon those mountains, that mingle with the sky
The rising sun
Softly, softly sing
David of the White Rock 'The Dying Poet to his Harp'
Come, sweetest composer of grief and pain
David Owen (1709-1739)
The rising of the lark
See, O see, the breaking day
The crystal ground
In the vale of Llangollen a cottage is seen
O welcome bat and owlet grey
The dimpled cheek
What have I done that my Mary should fly me?
The March of the Men of Harlech
Dauntless sons of Celtic sires
The lambs' fold vale 'David of the Blue Stone'
The busy hours of day are o'er
The Despairing Bard
While sad I strike the plaintive string
The minstrelsy of Chirk Castle
In days of ancient story
All through the night 'The Widow's Lament'
