N:”Possibly the tune alludes to King Henry the Seventh, grandson 
N:of Owen Tudor, who had experienced the affection of the Welsh
N:towards him at Bosworth-field; consequently, he reformed those 
N:unmerciful laws which were enacted against the Welsh by his 
N:predecessors, and granted them a Charter of Liberty, the same
N:as the English.”
