lildogturpy Posted May 22, 2006 Share Posted May 22, 2006 After being recommended the Northumbrian Minstrelsy collection of tunes I found several references to a collection of the tunes in abc format on the web by Henry Ford. Most of these links pointed to the same web address at the University of Bath, which no longer exists (the link not the University). I did find one link to the same tune collection at the Manchester Morris website, which no longer exists either (again, the link not the Morris Side). After searching for a while I thought that if anyone could find it JC's tunefinder could. I did a search for a tune I knew was in the collection and when the link from there worked I worked my way back up the url until I downloaded the entire text file which appears to be the Northumbrian Minstrelsy collection. Since I don't have the book to check the validity of the contents of this file I wonder if someone who has the book can check that the file looks right. I'd be happy to give the collection a home but don't want to put it out there until I have some idea of what it is. You can reach the collection that needs checking here Northumbrian Minstrelsy? From there you can get the individual tunes (in alphabetical order), the entire abc file or the pdf. I'd be grateful for feedback. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
