Music session - 14th November 2017


Katherine of Glastonbury, harp
Elyna Delynor, lever harp
Emily of Ildhafn, soprano recorder
Sympkyn of the Moor, hammered dulcimer
William de Cameron, tenor recorder

Tunes played:

Started with a couple of familiar old measures:

- Earl of Essex Measures
The Joseph Casazza arrangement, starts on a G and has an F# in the melody.

- Lorrayne Almain
Also the Joseph Casazza arrangement, starting on a G and with F#.

- Ballo del Fiore

- Il Canario

As previously mentioned both are good improvising pieces and ideally played without dots.

- Pease Bransle
Starts on a C, no sharps or flats. Unlikely some other bransles, this doesn't seem to lend itself to speeding up as we go.

Finally we played through 
- Cantiga 36
- Cantiga 119

just to remember how nice they are.

Future music sessions will take place on Tuesdays rather than Mondays. NEW VENUE! (email me for address), same time (7.30pm - 9.30pm).
Newcomers are very welcome :)
