Programme note:

'Toriad y Dydd', also known as 'Break of Day', is a traditional Welsh tune. Joseph Haydn arranged the tune for soprano and piano trio for a collection of Welsh songs around 1803-1804. The song became better known when it was included in the collection 'The Songs of Wales' published by Boosey and Hawkes in 1873. When sung, the song title is given variously as 'Torriad y Dydd' (spelt with a double 'r'), 'The Dawn of Day', 'Taliesin's Prophecy' and 'Golwg Ar dy Gyfaill'.
