FFARWEL EDNYFED FYCHAN (Ednyfed Fychan’s Farewell). Welsh, Air (3/4 time). E Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Fr. John Quinn finds a cognate (and derivative) melody in O'Neilll's Music of Ireland (1903, No. 548) as "Banquet (The)," with a first strain that has been "smoothed out", and reconstructed in the second strain to conform to an eight-bar format.
