Chamber Folk - Concert Practice (2022)

We suggest playing along with the videos below as you practice for the concert on the 18th June. Where there are new things to think about (e.g. dynamics or articulation that have been added since the video was recorded) these are noted next to the video.

First half

NOBLE SQUIRE DACRE, PEACOCK’S TUNE

Fiddle harmony group – please join in with the first A part

Dymanics in the B part of Peacock’s:

First time around – we build over the first 4 bars of the B part, then drop back and build again over the next 2 bars, then continue to the end (no pause)

Second time around – we build over the first 4 bars of the B part, then continue to get even louder for the next 2 bars. On the very last B, there is a pause before the last 2 bars.

CUMBERNAULD HOUSE, FLOWERS OF EDINBURGH

On the second time around  Cumbernauld House, remember to gradually play quieter during the first B part (so that we are already quiet when most of the ensemble drop out for the last B) 

There is a pause on this video at the end of Cumbernauld House. We are no longer doing this pause.

51st HIGHLAND DIVISION

Remember we are slowing down at the end (unlike the ending on this video). We’ll go over this at the next rehearsal.

ALLOA HOUSE

 

second Half

HANCOCK WALTZ, WUPPERTAL WALTZ

 

NEIL GOW’S LAMENT FOR THE DEATH OF HIS SECOND WIFE

 

HALSWAY SCHOTTISCHE

Remember to punctuate the last 3 notes.
