Tuesday Tunes Music session - 18th September 2018


Katherine of Glastonbury, harp
Elyna Delynor, alto rebec and harp
Emily of Ildhafn, soprano recorder
Sympkyn of the Moor, hammered dulcimer

Tunes played:

- Stella Splendens
Version used is on page 66 of the Snogbook. Note that after bar 34 we hold for another bar, so effectively the minim D and A become four beats long. Similarly when we repeat from the start, the very last bar also becomes four beats. We customarily play a chorus to finish, after the last verse.

Used for a warm up.

- If Ye Love Me (Thomas Tallis)
Sheet music is found in the Snogbook, pages 34 & 35.

Emily on soprano, Sympkyn and Elyna both on alto and Katherine playing the bass line. We ran through the whole thing start to finish with a little bit of wobble but mostly pretty good.

- Earl of Essex Measures
Using the Joseph Cassaza arrangement. (Will add link shortly)

- Ballo del Fiore
(Sheet music to come)

- Amoroso
(Sheet music to come)

- Belle Qui Tiens Ma Vie
(Sheet music to come)

Cantiga 36
As written. REGULARS NOTE: there is a very slight melodic change in bars 15 and 19 to what we learned by ear.

Cantiga 119 
As written.

- Cantiga 353 
New to some, simple arrangement for accompaniment that we can play with over the next few weeks. Sheet music to come.
