I am uncertain as to any hymns to St David but this very beautiful Welsh Carol will stand in his honour.
It was brought to world prominence by the film, Empire of the Son, starring Christian Bale who, incidentally, was born in Pembrokeshire.
In this clip the young Bale out sings the Japanese Kamikaze pilots who are about to set out on their mission.
So, today is the day to eat Welshcakes, Bara Brith and Cawl* and to have a sip or two of Reverend James - (not for me, it's Lent!)
* Bara Brith is a highly addictive fruit loaf while Cawl is a broth made with Lamb and vegetables, often eaten with a chunk of cheese.
