GÀLON DROM, Y (Heavy Heart, The). Welsh, Air (whole time). C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Jones's marking of the tune as "pathetic" may suggest manor rather than specifying a very slow tempo. The tune is in the penillion style, a vocal improvisation with a singer or small choir singing a countermelody over a harp melody.
