Chris Green New 18th-century tune book (16) RE: New 18th-century tune book 03 Nov 13

Hi all

Sorry for late replies - I've been on the road for a few days. Yes, I am the Chris Green of Coventry. :)

Bonnie - I'm very happy to take a personal cheque and will email you my address. Re overseas postage rates - I'll have to do some research tomorrow when the Post Office is open!

Each tune has the catalogue number of the book it came from and the composer or publishers name next to it. To be honest, book titles with this kind of repertoire aren't that helpful - they're mostly called 'X amount of Country Dance Tunes for the Year 17--' and really the only way to find your way through the morass is with the publisher's name and the catalogue number. The book doesn't go particularly deeply into the social context of the music as it primarily supposed to be a tune book not a work of history.

I've also set up an account with Amazon so it should be available directly from them in the next week or so. I'm also hoping to make it available for Kindle and other e-readers.

I don't know very much about the painting (although I did know it was 17th not 18th century, but thought it illustrated a session from the past rather nicely!). It was painted by an artist called Granger after a lithograph by Abraham Bosse and and I found it here -

The book will also be available at the Greenwich Early Music Show next week from Sean Jones (bagpipe maker) and Phil Bleazey (recorder maker) if anyone's going!
