Note: The Robert ap Huw manuscript (BL Add. 14905), copied c. 1613, was in the possession of Lewis Morris in 1742 and of his brother Richard in 1771. It contains late medieval harp music ('cerdd dant') written in tablature notation, notoriously difficult to interpret. See here [external link] [accessed 10 September 2019] for hyperlinks to a facsimile copy of the manuscript and to P. D. Whittaker, 'British Museum, Additional MS 14905; An interpretation and re-examination of the music and text' (unpublished University of Wales, Bangor, MA thesis, 1974). For a reference by Pennant to this manuscript, see A tour in Wales 1770 [1773] (1778), I, p. 429, n.
