Misc. Comments

Interesting manuscript of early-mid 19th century hymn tunes (dating 1830-1850). Evidence of at least 2 different copyist hands. Where present, texts (other than titles) are in Welsh. Contains some American compositions (by Billings etc), and some English, including at least two pieces by Joseph Nicholds (which seem to have been copied from his Monmouthshire Melodist).
