- Nov 3 2:29 PMI expect folks already know of this, but if not, it seems a treasure
trove to me. Looks to be notated in Finale to me.
This leads me to a question I've been having for a while. Why has such
a wonderful (if overly requested) tune such as Hole in the Wall been
ostracized so horribly, when other tunes from the same Playford Dances
and Ballads ~ 1651 are fair game... I.e., Heart's Ease, Black nag, Jenny
Pluck Pears, Nonesuch, Parson's Farewell (I think), Gathering Peascods
(I think), Rufty Tufty, Sellenger's Round, Trenchmore to name all the
ones I recognize from that list.
Is it because there are earlier sources for all these works other than
Hole in the Wall, than the 1651 Playford?
I don't understand.
I also don't understand why Scotland the Brave, a slightly campy tune
from 1891-5 is still hugged close while Hole in the Wall is beaten off
with a stick and the dogs are set on it.
Thanks for any elucidation!
