‘One must warmly welcome a volume by a scholar who is now established as the foremost authority on this particular genre of native verse. And it is doubly gratifying to find our vibrant tradition of Valentine song being introduced here to readers beyond the bounds of Welsh-language culture itself.’’
-Roy Saer, Welsh Folk-Song Society

‘The art of composing, singing and sending Valentine verses is an old and honoured one. This detailed, scholarly analysis of a fine Welsh custom, with translations and tunes provided, reveals the significant part it has played in our folk tradition over the centuries.’
-Rhidian Griffiths

'This most attractively produced volume, a real credit to the University of Wales Press, reflects a vast amount of pioneering, highly specialized research work clearly extending over many years. The distinguished author devotes her attention to the corpus of, largely previously unpublished Welsh poetry written to celebrate the feast of St Valentine celebrated annually for several centuries on 14 February.'
- J. Graham Jones, Gwales
