As an encore at the recital the other night, we played a little melancholy Welsh folk song. Simple but effective in its main aim of bringing a lump to the throat and a tear to the eye. A member of the audience asked me at the reception afterwards if all Welsh folk songs were sad, to which I replied that they were almost exclusively pretty and pretty miserable. He asked my why that was the case and I told him that is was probably because it rained so much in Wales.
