438FW: [AtenDance]Estrella War Sheet Muisc & audio links
- Jan 18, 2010Greetings to all Musicans in the Outlands. There is a lot of court dance music sheets available via this Estrella War ball website. Many of the dances at the three Estrella War balls, are also danced in the Outlands in our various local groups. I very much recommend that you check out this site for the sheet music.Jayne Barber

Subject: [AtenDance] New info on the Estrella War ball website
Estrella ball musicians! Wondering how fast to play the music? Trying to figure out the melody for an unfamiliar dance?
I've added some audio files to the Estrella War ball website, with comments about the music (number of repeats, things to watch out for) and a quick once-through of each melody line. Find the audio links next to each dance title at:

Please note that each file is a *very* quick once-through. It's just to give an idea of the melody and tempo. If the music is to be played two or three or more times, I just played it once. Some dances have only snippets of music with explanation. None of it is intended as a complete performance of dance music, but I hope it will help you get familiar with the music before we play it at War.
I look forward to seeing everyone then!
