Alan Day Posted March 14, 2008 Share Posted March 14, 2008 Please remember that this was a private collector who assembled copied music scores into a book form for his own personal use.It was not a book done by a publisher. It therefore shows only this players personal choice of music at the time it was assembled. There is still a long way to go however he may have got into music in minor keys as he progressed.Al Ah...I see. I didn't realize that this wasn't published. That makes this especially interesting, then. Was this music already arranged for concertina (and published) in other collections, and then simply recollected, or are there arrangements in his volumes that are unique to this collection? There is mention of a tutor - why would he make a tutor for his own personal use? Was the tutor from another publication, and he just stuck it in with everything else? It seems unlikely that one would write an instruction manual only for oneself, so I would guess that it's written independent of all the other music? Sorry if this has been covered already, I'm just very curious as to the nature of this collection. The music all appears to have been published and written for concertina by Concertina players Regondi,G Case, Blagrove etc and is a representation of music played late 19th Century.The Music has been copied from the original music and Juliette is printing the front covers of the music as she progresses through the book. The Tutor part is more complicated exercises and is towards the back of the book ,not where you or I would expect to find them. This is almost like a scrap book of music personal to the person who compiled it. There may possibly be music in this collection that is unique if the original sheet music no longer exists. I can understand your questions as only Juliette and I have seen the original. Al Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
