X:1 T:Meillionen T:Sir Watkin’s Delight M:C| L:1/8 R:Air N:”There is an old mansion called Meillionen, near Reddgelert, in Caernarvonshire; N:and this Tune was formerly called Consêt Gwraig Meillionen, or the N:Delight of the lady of Meillionen. It has also been called y Feillionen o N:Feirionydd, therefore she might probably be a native of Merionethshire: N:But Meillionen literally implies, the Trefoil.” B:Jones - The Bardic Museum (1810, pp. 80-82) N:Jones's transcription contains numerous variations for the harp.
