Notes Dedicated to Robert Ivan Foster (baritone) and recorded by him (with Tryphena Partridge, harp) on Onslo LP OCAB-61-63; songs are: 1. Lullaby (Suo-gân); 2. The Plea of the Miller (Tôn Y Melinydd); 3. David of the White Rock (Dafydd Y Gareg Wen)


The winners on the disc, I think, are Suo-gân, a splendid Welsh melody … Tryphena Partridge plays the harp accompaniments for the Welsh songs most acceptably…

Records and Recording, April 1964

Of the Welsh songs, I am particularly glad to have the lovely lullaby, Suo-gân … very well accompanied on the harp in the Welsh songs.
