Nansi Richards – “Gorhoffedd Gwŷr Harlech” (March of the Men of Harlech).

   Hey people! 🙂 

   The piece I have for you today is a traditional Welsh tune which is quite important for Welsh history. I believe it’s more well-known as Rhyfelgyrch Gwŷr Harlech, but Gorhoffedd Gwŷr Harlech is the earlier version that originally had no lyrics. This is a military march that is associated with the siege of Harlech Castle which lasted seven years during the Wars of the Roses, when it was held by the Lancastrians.
