Alan Day Posted March 21, 2008 Share Posted March 21, 2008 Leo has just kindly posted "The Manor Royal Reel "this you will find is identical (apart from a few missed notes ) to the original "Manor Royal March". When I sent this version to Dave Prebble he was already playing it as a reel and he like me likes to experiment with tune speeds and styles. John Dewdney of The Broadwood Morris Men used to do the same with "Star of County Down Waltz" first playing it in session as a waltz then switching to a jig. If you are looking for a minor tune reel or jig I strongly recommend this one.Now some purists may hold up their hands in horror that a famous Irish tune should be speeded up but even some famous composers of classical music have done the very same.
