Re: [OutlandsDance] I am looking for the sheet music to several dances--please help. Thank you, Lady Barbara, al-Barran, Outlands
- Hi there:
> I am looking for the (sheet music) to the following dances:I don't know this one. If it's Playford, the melody line is in the book. If
> 1) Well Hall (it is a waltz tune for the dance Well Hall)
it's a waltz, though, it won't be (the waltz didn't exist that far back).
> 2) Maltese Bransle (Companions of St. Cecilia)Properly titled "Turkish" branle, this is an SCA invention by Mistress Signy
Dimmridaela (Northshield). The music she used is titled Schiarazula Marazula,
which is from a period (or near period) source, but I don't remember which.
Could be Susato. Could be Praetorious. Could be somebody else.
This is probably in M. Avatar's music book (as will some of the others).
> 3) Angus Reel (Haste to the Wedding )I don't know this one. It's probably 18th century, and may be available from
modern folk dance sources.
> 4) We use Woodicock for Werligig (Woodicock)Again, Playford tunes are in the book, but I don't know where to find
> 5) Trenchmore (I would like to find the music, Red House Reel )
> 6) Upon a Summer's Day
> 7) Black Nag
arrangements. Trenchmore is not 1st edition (I think it's 2nd edition), Upon A
Summer's Day is *the first* Playford dance, and Black Nag is 3rd edition. I'm
pretty sure Black Nag is available on line, but I don't know where (I'm not the
local music collector).

> titled Espanoylet (I don't know the name of the music used)
told to me, the music came from an LP (that's an old fashioned vinyl record, to
you kids out there) that included instructions for the dance. The person that
introduced the dance hasn't played in years, but if I dig around, I may be able
to track down some more details, at least.

Many of your dances are there (although I did not see Well Hall).
