Tuesday Tunes Music session - 5th March 2019


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

Tunes played:

- Belle Qui Tiens Ma Vie
Arrangement same as used in Southron Gaard I believe, 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.

- Splendens Ceptigera
A canon from the Red Book, easily learned by ear. Sheet music HERE.

- To Drive the Cold Winter Away
Still new to most of us. Sheet music HERE. Players can choose to play single bass notes following the chord structure as an easy alternative to any of the written lines.


- New Almain
One of the Old Measures, sheet music HERE.

***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 :)
