Helen Enquiry: Re: Horses Brawl (41) RE: Enquiry: Re: Horses Brawl 29 Dec 19


If there is one accidental in a session tune which I can't play without flipping a lever on my celtic harp, I will play a note one third up or down just to not clash with the accidental.

If it's one chord which doesn't work in the key I have set the harp in, I play the other notes in the chord and leave out the note which is a problem i.e. a problem if I don't want to flip the "flipping" lever up and then down again (or vice versa) in quick succession.

Horses Branle/Branle des chevaux is in our session tunes list.

On the subject of Branles or Bransles, I watched an interesting TV show just before Christmas: Lucy Worsley's Christmas Carol Odyssey - the interesting history of some of our best known Christmas carols.

I learned an interesting fact.

Branle de l'officiel (aka Ding Dong Merrily on High)

Here is the dance
