"correct" version, only the version the musicians may
be used to. There are a few pieces, such as Belle
Qui, that we have period multi-part arrangements for
but most dances only have a melody line.

has insisted that we shouldn't have to write the
accidentals in, we should "know" where they are. We
all nod and write them in anyway :-)
There were a several small changes that I thought
about trying to mention on the Lilies music page, but
decided it would be much easier to wait until
rehearsal. Since I have no other musicians to play
with, I can only check the top line anyway :-) In
practice, some weird harmonics can pop up depending on
the instruments and players. Even on pieces we've
played for years, odd things can happen when a new
instrument is tossed in.
