I did my PhD on Scottish song-collecting, but I'm now curious to see what was going on elsewhere in Celtic Britain, so this book is of very great interest to me. Are the indigenous songs in Welsh?

It's a great resource isn't it? Yes, they are in Welsh - there are other examples on the site and it's hoped people will add more, it would be great to have recordings as well!
