Suo gân is a Welsh lullaby (the title simply means 'lullaby') which first appeared in print around 1800. The Welsh poet/musician Robert Bryan copied it from an old manuscript owned by Orig Williams of Llanberis at the foot of Snowdon and, adding some of his own words, published it in 1905. The melody features prominently in Spielberg’s 1987 film Empire of the Sun. Toby Young’s arrangement of Suo gân (2013) was premiered by Armonico Consort.
