See Ieuan Glan Geirionydd Evans, Evan. [Glangeirionydd.] Born at Trefriw in Caernarvonshire. He is considered the chief Welsh Hymn-writer of this century, as Williams was of the last century. He published two books of hymns and tunes between 1829 and 1841. He was Vicar of Rhyl, and died in 1850. Although his hymn-books and tunes are not in use now, yet many of his hymns are found in every collection in Wales. [Rev. W. Glanffrwd Thomas] -- John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)  Go to person page >
