That’s beautiful!   And yes, I can follow along.  Sing along, no, but the words sound enough like what it looks like that I know where they are.

I really like this – I still have it playing in the background.  😛

Just like @mak418 I can easily follow along…but would be too shy to SING along!  I wouldn’t want to mispronounce the words, but they definitly are pronounced close enough to their spelling that I never got lost!

I can follow it but if I attended a wedding with it I would be making wild guesses trying to get the pronouciation right. Perhaps offer a more precise transliteration for the non-Welsh? I know when I’m working on a particularly difficult passage in Hebrew or Greek I first transliterate it so I have one less step to think about, and that’s not even including the musical aspect.

Very beautiful hymn though!

I think it is a beautiful hymn but a little hard to follow if one is not linguistically adept. Why not assign a set group of people to stand before your guests and lead them through the hymn? That way everyone can follow along but be backed up by some stronger singers who know the language well?

I had a really hard time following along, but it’s really beautiful! I got lost after the 5th line or so and couldn’t catch back up, but I’m sure it’s because I don’t understand the pronuciation! 😛
