Christmas & SCA Dance Melodies for Flute & Recorder
My SCA Dance/Music web page The SCA music/dance
page contains renaissance dance song melodies to learn on the recorder as
well as anything that I figure can help dance and music in the SCA.
This page is under construction. I plan to add popular SCA dance song
melodies in GIF and Postscript format. ie there will be several dance songs
per page. This is intended as a quick reference to popular dance songs.
Since I need such a thing to remind myself of the dance tunes; I figured
that they would be useful for others!
MIDI Music Archive and Pointers
I've started using
Noteworthy Composer to enter music. I
am planing to enter all songs from the 1651 edition of Playford an also
enter ever dance song from the SCA that I can (given that the music is
freely distributable). There will
be mistakes so feel free to try to dance to these songs or compare them to
your dance notes.
Midi version of these songs will be available at a later date. Drop me a
note if you'd like to help out. All songs assume that you're music card
is compatable with GM (general MIDI) and that you have a flute/basson/
clarinet that sounds half decent.
I used a Gravis Interwave sound
card on my computer. This card is creates its sound based upon recordings
of an instrument. I am working with some other people to get recordings
of renaissance instruments so that our music can sound good. In the works
is an SCA dance CD of all your popular dance songs as well as a second CD
of more advanced dance songs.
PC sound software
Other MIDI programs that I've tried include Cakewalk (included with the
Gravis sound card and some Creative sound cards),
Encore by Passport
Greensleves (MIDI file)
