"Y Gwcw Fach" (The Little Cuckoo), is one of the many
Welsh songs dealing with cuckoos, which are a sign of
spring. This song asks the cuckoo to carry a message of
hope and comfort to the singers lover.
Collected just outside Chicago by the Reverend R Silyn
Roberts, Gwcw Fach was published by Robert Bryan in
Alawon y Celt.
Although written for voice, this arrangement was
created for Flute and Concert (Pedal) Harp.
