Gliddon's 'Coral Pearl' gavotte

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of the music for W T Gliddon's 'The Coral Pearl' (Gavotte) as advertised on the inside front cover of Maccann's The Concertinist's Guide?  I would like to know what key is specified, as it's one of the pieces that Maccann himself recorded.  Thanks, Peter.

Peter,

I think you'll probably find that Maccann would have transposed it to an easier key to play it in, rather than the key in was written in if not an easy key. But if you are trying to estimate the recording speed, the standard pitch for concertinas then was about  C=517 Hz which today is C=523.There's a table of notes frequencies  here

Thanks, Wes -- I've now 'unilaterally' decided on C major, equivalent to playing the disc at a very reasonable 70rpm.  Peter
