9781899512706: Airs For Pairs

This book contains twenty-one of the most popular traditional melodies, both dance tunes and song airs, from around Britain and Ireland. Each tune is arranged with a harmony part for a second melody instrument as well as an optional chord accompaniment for guitar, piano etc.. In all cases but one (College Hornpipe) the harmony does not descend below middle C, so that the arrangements can be played by almost all melody instruments including recorders. The tunes are a part of a body of popular music which has survived to the present day alongside many other types of music. Generally called Folk or (preferably) Traditional music, it forms a tradition distinct from that of Art or Classical music, though it is no less artful in its own way and on its own scale. So, although musicians with a classical training are welcome to play and enjoy these arrangements, it should be borne in mind that there are many ways of interpreting the written notes: ornamentation which is not written down in frequently used to embellish the music and in the case of the dance tunes a robust approach to rhythm is called for (for fiddlers, digging in with the bow on the main beats). For those who need extra guidance there are now many excellent tutors available for most instruments and styles.
