The following airs are attributed to him: ' Owiai Gywydd ' ('The Warbler's Ode'), ' Gas gan Grythor ' ('The Fiddler's Dislike'), ' Crechwen Feinir ' ('The Maiden's Laughter'), ' Llonen Hafar ' ('The Merry Slattern'), ' Awen Wrli ' ('The Reeling Muse'), ' Awen Oleuddydd ' ('The Daylight Muse'), ' Oerloes Goeden ' ('The Sapling'), ' Cog Wenllian ' ('Gwenllian's Cuckoo').

It should be explained that some of the English titles are those given to the airs in much later times, and not literal translations of the Welsh.
