The tune expresses this quiet joy. It was written by David Evans, a widely influential Welsh musician, and given the Latin name that means ‘Lantern of the Lothians’, probably referring to the remains of a monastery at Haddington, East Lothian, Scotland, destroyed in 1355, or to the fifteenth-century church on the same site.
