I’m working from several loose ends~
Lillibulero for a Morris Dance.
- The melody and lyric rhythm I am taking from my oral memory of a casette in the Wee Sing series. (I’m unable to find it.)
- The harmony I’m taking partially from the traditional, 1950s BBC call sign version of Lillibullero.
- I’m changing the 7th word from “tossed” or “swept” to “whisked”. (Who tossed or swept her?) We know that the wind whisked her.
- I found some sheet music, in the wrong key, D major, a little too high for me to sing. C major fits my voice better. I am adapting it to 4 parts based on Wee Sing’s melody and the BBC’s harmony.
Some other tunes I want to learn.
