    My Little Welsh Home - Traditional

    This is a Welsh song by W S Gwynne Williams, which I have arranged in memory of my mother. It is for Brass Band, with optional vocal solo or unison choir. My mother was born, Doreen Davies, on 27th November 1918, in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, a small town in South West Wales. She had a beautiful voice, and met my father, Bill Paton, during World War II. She was singing in a troop concert at the County Theatre in her home town, and my father was the MC. Throughout her life, my mother and father entertained, and she was singing right up until the final months of her life. She spent many years of her life in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, a seaside town in South West England, and it was here that she passed away on 20th September 24. During the last several months of her life, she often referred to the song “My Little Welsh Home”. Here are the words.I am dreaming of the mountains of my home, Of the mountains where in childhood I would roam; I have dwelt ‘neath Southern skies, Where the summer never dies, But my heart is in the mountains of my home.I can see the little homestead on the hill, I can hear the magic music of the rill; There is nothing to compare, With the love that was once there, In that little homestead on the hill.I can see the quiet churchyard down below, Where the mountain breezes wander to and fro; And when God my soul will keep, It is there I want to sleep, With those dear old folks that loved me long ago.Looking at the words, I can see why it meant so much to her. Haverfordwest is at the foot of the Preseli Mountains, and her home and Church were at the top of a hill.My mothers’ ashes were taken back to her own little Welsh home, and laid to rest in the grounds of the Church where she was Christened, Confirmed and Married.The Welsh Bass-Baritone singer Bryn Terfel has recorded this song on one of his CDs. It has also been released on “New Horizons”, by Aled Jones.Roger Thorne, composer, arranger and of Thornes Music, also MD of Wem Jubilee Band, was very complimentary about this arrangement, (following a concert in which they featured a Welsh lady singer), referring to the use of tone colours, harmony and the atmospheric sound.
