A little room at the bottom of the wall for a part of a poem by T. Gwyn. Jones.
I originally set this poem for an album of songs called LLiwio’r Gair / The Colour of Saying (a mother / daughter collaboration). It was a solo song cycle written in response to visual artist Mary Lloyd Jones’s banner installation charting the development of language from pre historic cup and ring markings, to the Welsh bardic tradition. Here is a translation of the text. :-
Gwlad y Bryniau / The Land of hills
and in the dance this one sang the rhythms of her dreams
the low song of pre history and in her land the song is without end
