Description

Bugeilio'r Gwenith Gwyn is an 18th century Welsh love song known to many by its English title of 'Watching the Wheat'. Although the song describes a tragic love affair, the music remains extremely popular with musicians throughout Wales.

This skilful new setting for euphonium and brass band by Welshman Gareth Wood was commissioned by Robert and Lorraine Childs and given to their son David as a 26th birthday present.

Bugeilio'r Gwenith Gwyn can be heard on the CD Celtic Charm (DOYCD214) on which the performers are David Childs and the Cory Band.
