  • 1812-1821

Tune book, compiled 1812-1821 (watermark 1810), containing psalm tunes, music for a funeral anthem (ff. 4 verso-6), and hymn-tunes, noted in the hands of Edward Maesgwynne [?p. Llanboidy, Carmarthenshire], 1812 (f. 3), John Phillips, 1820 (f. 22) and Richard Jones Phillips, 1821 (f. 6). The volume belonged to John Phillips of Penrallt kibier [Pen yr Allt Ceibwr, p. St Dogmael's, Pembrokeshire] (inside rear cover). Two tunes - Pleasant Morning and New Durham - are accompanied by Welsh words (ff. 6 verso-8).
The source of one tune is noted as 'David Morgan's Book 1820' (f. 3 verso), and the authorship of two tunes - Abergeleu and Wonderful - is ascribed to the same individual, 1820 (ff. 16 verso, 18 verso, 19 verso). David Morgan may possibly be identified as Dafydd Siencyn Morgan (1752-1844), the Cardiganshire precentor and composer.

Edwards Maesgwynne, John Phillips and Richard Jones Phillips.
