Music session - 15th August 2017

Present:

Sympkyn of the Moor, hammered dulcimer
Katherine of Glastonbury, harp
Elena y Delyn, bray harp, alto rebec
Katherina Weyssin, treble viol da gamba

Tunes played:

We started with revising the Single Bransle. Starting on a G with a Bb in the melody and an accidental F# as the second to last note, which non-chromatic instruments replace with a low D. Sheet music will be posted soon, promise.

(As usual, not using sheet music is encouraged, if one is playing either melody or simple enough accompaniment, but I understand if people don't know the actual tune then it helps to have it written.)

Then we did the Double Bransle next, in the same pitch/key/etc.

And then the Montarde Bransle, which still needs a bit of practice.

Finally we thought we'd see how a good ol' Cantiga would go, so we played Cantiga 119. 

Will be revisiting all the above next time.
