I'd like to appologize for the abrupt tone in the message I
just sent. I intended to write the message, then go back and
make sure it sounded right. Unfortunately, my browser begin to
do some strange and alarming things, so I just quickly typed
the first thing in my head and sent it--out of fear that I
would lose the whole thing. Please forgive.
Please re-read my message with the idea, that I didn't intend
to be abrupt, rude or presumptious--I just didn't have the
opportunity to read it to myself.
BTW, does anyone know if any of the following songs are period:
Ashgrove (original Welsh name "Llewlyn On" )
Road to Lisdoonvorna
or these--which I doubt are period
I have heard these in non-SCA context which implied they were
period, but I have my doubts. Then again I've heard Scotland
the Brave in a SCA context and according to my information it
wasn't written down until 1750.
Also, I'm assuming that 90 to 100% of the jigs and hornpipes
are not period--is this correct?
Any answers would be greatly appreciated if you happen to know
the answers. Don't go to any trouble, I can and should do my
own research after all.
PS In case you are puzzled by my apparent double stance on
period authencity. As a pauper living in a country with free
librarys and even free internet access, I am a bit tougher with
period authencity in the area of knowledge than in the areas of
objects. Objects like clothing, instruments, tents, baskets,
etc. cost money and ones that are "really" period would be
extremely expensive. Since my outside life is more important
than any persona, my money gets spent on things like a used
car, school and health care--not clothing and period
instruments. In other words, having a period repertoire is
cheap, but having a truly period instrument is not. Having an
absolutely accurate either is probably immpossible.
Just my opinion,
