Rhythmic issue in the first bar.

 

Yes quite so, any bright ideas because that's what's written!? I could make the first two notes into a pick up bar but then it sounds odd the second time around. <_<

 

and Happy Christmas!!!

:)

 

 

Well it might be heresy, but I'd leave those first two notes out or else put a repeat sign (facing forward) after them and another at the end so those two notes can be an "intro.". The tune then falls nicely into two 4 bar phrases. BTW the only on line version I could find is a much longer and more interesting version which has enough of this one in it to make me think the Chappell version is either intended for some set of words, or is truncated for other reasons... Who knows.

 

Is it Happy Boxing Day now?? :P

I added the repeats as being the least misleading way to show all of the written notes, there isn't really a right or wrong here methinks. :unsure:

 

Boxing Day passed in a flurry of music and morris dancing!

The final tune! :lol:

Expect an email of the whole thing later today Chuck, I'm hoping you will cast your proof reading eye over it before it is released into the wild, I think it's been pretty well error trapped as we've gone along though :D

Thanks for all the work you've done on this, tallship. Nice to have another book on the virtual shelf!

 

As a Scottish tune specialist I hadn't expected a personal response Nigel but it is most welcome! The arrangements are simple to say the least but they do mark a period in time when people bought books to suit the instrument they played and this was one such.

I notice that Amazon has indexed this book and given the date as 1859 (see here).

This is a different collection Nigel, it has an author - F.Nava and was most probably melody line only as some of the instruments named can only play one note at once.

 

The book I have transcribed is "Chappell's One Hundred Scotch Melodies Arranged for the Concertina by Carlo Minasi"

 

The list of tunes used may of course have been exactly the same but these were specifically arranged to be played on concertina.

 

Pete.

After discussions with Ex Libris of this parish (who is of course the librarian for the ICA) it would seem that this odd little book isn't in the ICA collection so despite my earlier reluctance to do so I've scanned it all before giving the book away. Ex Libris likes his scans raw so he can clean them up himself so I haven't bothered with cropping etc so if you download the scans you'll have to do that yourself. Here it is then in all its glory:

 

Chappell's One Hundred Scotch Melodies.
