Default Monthly composition thread

Keeping it slightly vague as to what month it refers to (we've all been a bit distracted), this month's prompt is a tune title, inspired by this Twitter thread:

Your task, should you choose to accept it, is to write a tune titled "The Goats of Llandudno".

Don't know how Welsh it might sound, but here it is!

I'm happy to share my first humble attempt at composing a pipe tune for this month's challenge! I've gotten a few pointers along the way, but wanted to submit my tune in its...original form for the sake of this thread. This was a fun little prompt and I got a good laugh from the eponymous Twitter thread -- much needed in these difficult times. I've also linked a practice chanter recording here on my Google Drive. I'm looking forward to growing as a composer!

My first inclination in composing a Welsh tune would be to set it for four-part choir.
That said, I'll see what I can come up with…

Some fantastic entries here! Is it just me or is anyone else unable to get into DamhCabrach's link? It's asking me to sign in, but since I don't have an account with Microsoft, that's a bit tricky!
