Nicholas Nye is a poem for young children written by Walter De La Mere (1873-1956) in 1931. It was to set to music, for Unison Voices with Piano accompaniment, by Llifon Hughes-Jones in 1942.
Dr. Llifon Hughes-Jones (1918-1996) was a British composer, conductor and teacher. He studied at the Manchester Music college (now the RNCM) and Trinity College, London, and later taught music for many years at Salford Grammar school. He wrote many works for the National Eisteddfod competitions, in which he also adjudicated. He was one of the few composers who regularly wrote in Welsh, and the musical culture of Wales is still indebted to his contributions.
