Tuesday Tunes Music session - 5th February 2019


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

Tunes played:

- Cantiga 119 
Sheet music HERE. Old favourite for a warm up.

- Cantiga 36
Sheet music HERE. Also very familiar to most of us.

- Cantiga 353 - new to some!
Arrangement available HERE. Dulcimer taking the second line and recorder trialling the third. If in doubt, learn the melody.   

- Cantiga 278 - still new!
Sheet music HERE. Just learning straight melody for now. Harps have a basic degree of chord structure worked out.

- Laudemus Virginem
A cute little canon from the Red Book. Learned by ear. 

- Earl of Essex Measures
Another old favourite. Sheet music HERE.

- 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.

- Il Canario
Another good one to learn by ear. Sheet music is also available.

***NOTE: Anybody who is not able to make the group sessions but wants to be involved in these musical endeavours PLEASE email me - we can talk about how we can fit things together remotely!

ALSO NOTE: We practice weekly at 7.30pm on Tuesday, and take the school holidays off.
Email me on for address.
Newcomers and casual drop-ins are very welcome :)
