Music for St David's Day

12 February 2016 - 10:58 PM

I couldn't find any previous discussion of this on the forum, so: can members suggest any Welsh or Welsh-themed organ music for 1st March? Those that spring to mind already are Mathias and Tomkins, plus Vaughan-Williams's Three Preludes on Welsh Hymn Tunes. (Rhosymedre is a little gem, the others less obviously so, but I might try out number three, Hyfrydol.)

There are plenty of Welsh composers of course but I'm not aware of any others that wrote for the organ.

Are there any other preludes on Welsh tunes (by composers of any nationality)?
