Here are the basic melodies for three songs for the symphony, I have audio files for Barbara Allen and The Great Silkie too. I hope to get Mary Hamilton/Four Marys up in the next few days.
Tish has been having computer and web site problems, bummer.........
Someone asked if The Great Silkie was in the key of G and the f notes should be flat. I am not a music theory student but I think the song is in G Mixolydian....please be gentle with me if I got that wrong
At any rate, all of the notes in the song are normal, there are no flats or sharps!
phew, I'm not comfortable with modal music....I still get confused!
Yes Donna you are right that you have it in the Key of G. There should still be an F# in the key signature and there should be natural signs in front of the F's in the music. Thanks a bunch for posting this and others as well....
Thanks, Donna. Hoping the others aren't too difficult to learn!
