The Story of Capel Celyn: The Village that Drowned

Here is an a interesting video about a Welsh village called capel celyn. I now understand the general hostility towards the British, the same that echoes Irish sentiments.

Since we are talking about Wales, I’d like to dedicate this song to all those who love Welsh music. This is taken from the second album of Ceredwen called ‘The Golden Land’. Do check it out and get the CD for yourself. You will love it. I commend bushido4368 for uploading this and providing translation. More artist info from this link.

Song from Welsh duet Ceredwen. This is the lyric in Welsh and English :

Tymorau’n newid yn ei blaen
Prydfertwch cefn gwlad yn tynnu sylw Rhufain

Yn ein gwlad, cefngwlad

Tymorau’n newid yn ei blaen
Prydfertwch cefn gwlad yn tynnu sylw Rhufain
Yyns ffrwtthlon yn llawn o gyfoeth
Digon o adnoddau materol ac ysbrydol

Yn y gwlad gyfoethog
Arian ag Aur
Yn ei digonned
I rhannu rhwng phawb

Amgylchfyd, delfrydol
Yn llawn o gyfoeth materol ac ysbrydol

Yn y gwlad gyfoethog
Arian ag Aur
Yn ei digonned
I rhannu rhwng phawb

Maent yn dod i’r ynys ffrwtyhlon
Er mwyn casglu’r cyfoeth aur

Translation :

Seasons forever changing
The beauty of the land drawing the attention of Rome

In our land, our country

Seasons forever changing
The beauty of the land drawing the attention of Rome
This fruitful island, full of wealth
Of the earth and of the spirit

In the wealthy land
of silver and gold
There is plenty
To share amongst all

This ideal place, full of wealth
Of the earth and of the spirit

In the wealthy land
of silver and gold
There is plenty
To share amongst all

They come to the fruitful island
To collect the golden wealth

  1. I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
