    This is a traditional slow air or slow reel from Wales, arranged for mandolin quartet by Evelyn Tiffany-Castiglioni, from her free ebook "A Winter's Tale, Vol. 3" (posted here). Her source for the tune was:

    Hamilton, Alex and Robin Huw Bowen. Blodau'r Grug: 100 Popular Welsh Folk Dance Tunes. The Welsh Folk Dance Society, 1992.

    Thanks, Evelyn!

    I have recorded the tune on three mandolins and tenor guitar.

    1921 Gibson Ajr mandolin (x2)
    1915 Luigi Embergher mandolin
    Vintage Viaten tenor guitar

    That's really splendid, Martin. And thanks for the links to the Tiffany-Castiglioni books.
