We're working our way through the Red Book of Montserrat, learning the pieces and then memorising them.

The official Bransle

-Katherine top line (and chords)

-Emrys second

-Kelsie third (alto recorder)

Started playing this for the first time tonight. We'll practice trying to get speed a bit faster
