      Well.

      After what I think has been well over a year of trying to get it
      together and get people interested, the Shire of the Standing Stones had
      their first music night last night!

      An open invitation was extended of course to those in Amlethmoor and
      Wyvern Cliffe, and anyone else willing to show up. There were 6 of us.
      More than I feared and less than I hoped.

      We had a chance to distribute some music from the long ago defunct
      Stones music group and to learn that not a single one of us can
      sight-sing a lick.

      I'm very excited. We hope to encompass Voice, Dance Ensemble,
      Dance, Instrumental, and Percussion, and whatever anyone else wants.

      Yeah!!!!!

          We don't have a location for dance, but for now it matters not as we're
          gonna concentrate on other things until we can perhaps get a site and
          enough folks to justify it.

              Well... to be completely honest two were drag-along spouses :) One
              being the 'husband of hostess', but all are willing to participate.

              As you might imagine, scheduling is proving to be a real bear.

              Couple of questions.

              The first is, does CalontirDance serve double-duty for Music as well? I
              think I've always seen musical discussions here, but I didn't know if
              there was a list more specifically for vocal and non-dance instrumental.

              Second is... I've the Crystal Ball (and corrections) and Lilies Dance
              music packets to give my guys, but for vocal I've scanned in the vocal
              music I had from when Countess Alix was the head honcho. The question
              is.... A lot of it is copied out of copyrighted materials. Like the
              Dance Music, I'd like to give it to folks electronically and ask them to
              print it on their own dime as for just last night for 8 copies of a
              small selection of dance, vocal, inst , & fingering charts the bill came
              to over $40*****. What do you folks do. Do you think it's safe putting
              it in a password secured directory at an unpublished/linked web address
              distributed through private email (i.e., not yahoogroups) ??

              The third is more for Mistress Conna, but anyone's welcome to field it.
              A while back I was discussing getting this group going with you and have
              since lost my inbox. You shared a link with me that had already done
              much of what I had planned to do.. I.e., re-notate a lot of this messy
              vocal music and then export to parts, both as sheets and as midi. Might
              I trouble you for that site(s) again?


              ***** I was shocked to find that Kinkos is charging $.08 a sheet for b&w
              copies. I was relieved to find that there was a price break if you
              printed double-sided. Only $.16 a sheet!!!!!!!!!!!! What gives? The
              paper isn't part of the cost at all????? Very irritated.

              Many thanks!!!

                I¹ve always treated it as both dance and music, since we¹re a closely
                associated bunch. I don¹t think the dancers mind sharing the space, do you??
                I think it¹s good to share one list, rather than splintering off, but maybe
                that¹s just me...

                There is a ton of music available for SCA use; no need to use copyrighted
                material and also no need for one person to be responsible for all those
                copying costs. I have known some music groups who have found some wonderful
                book and all agreed to go out and buy individual copies. But I think that¹s
                rare. Why not make use of the wonderful free stuff available?

                Check out:

                That last site (saers.com) has a bunch of vocal stuff. Granted, they
                arranged it for recorders, but it¹s got all the words, too. And it¹s free.
                (Tons of John Dowland, for example.) I think it would work great for vocal
                groups.

                And here¹s the Choral Public Domain Library:
                http://www.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

                I would stay away from Kinkos, etc. I¹ve been really impressed with a group
                that¹s an offshoot of the St. Louis Recorder Society, called Easy Early
                Music. It¹s run by a lovely woman named Joyce; she¹s dedicated to helping
                people learn how to play the recorder. She put together a web page with
                music she finds from the free sites listed above (and maybe others, too),
                and people can go and download what they need for that month. It¹s very
                convenient. Here¹s her web site: http://easyearlymusic.org/

                Yay music!
