  GO BRITANNIA! Wales: Welsh Literature - 19th Century
Golyddan was the bardic title chosen by John Robert Pryse (1840-62): it was the name of a warrior in the "Brut y Tywysogyon" of the medieval period.
Hughes used a bardic title derived from the little valley in which he was born, Glyn Ceiriog in Llanarmon Dyffryn Clwyd, in an area only a few miles from the English border yet which even today has retained much of its Welsh culture and language.
Hughes published many volumes of poetry, and many of his poems became popular pieces for recitation on countless eisteddfod stages as well as well-known songs.

 Welsh History - An Era of Change - free Suite101.com course
Because of their complete lack of knowledge of the Welsh language, many English critics are unable to appreciate such poets as John Ceiriog Hughes, whose publication of five volumes of his poetry in the 1860's brought him enormous fame in Wales, if not elsewhere.
Hughes specialized in expressing the feeling of nostalgia for the rural scenes, characters and music of one's childhood, a feeling known in Welsh as hiraeth.
It is no wonder that Ceiriog is so revered in Welsh schools today, for the following century saw the most rapid decline in the percentages of people speaking Welsh.

This Welsh folksong is sung to a tune which was first published in Edward Jones' Musical and Poetical Relics of the Welsh Bards (1784), though the melody is probably a lot older.
The lyrics were written by John Ceiriog Hughes.
It has since been translated into several languages, including English and it is suggested that the first English translation of the lyrics was written by the ‘Romantic’ poet Amelia Opie (1769-1853); If that were the case then it obviously predates Edward Jones’ book.
