    Question What music is this?

    Here is a well known music piece.
    I have heard it many times before.
    But what is it? By whom? I don't know.

    In the video, it is described as "the one about the fellow with the harp", but it is not much help.

    You can hear it here on this YouTube video.

    Thank You.

    song "Dafydd y Garreg Wen (David of the White Rock)" (Music by David Owen, Lyrics by John Ceiriog Hughes)
    Dafydd y Garreg Wen is a traditional Welsh musical air and folk song.
    There is a tradition that as Owen lay on his death bed, he called for his harp and composed the tune of the haunting song.
    The words were added more than a hundred years later by the poet John Ceiriog Hughes (1832–1887).
