I selected these 24 nautically themed tunes from Playford’s Dancing Master, O’Neill’s Music of Ireland, and The Gow Collection of Scottish Dance Music and arranged them as duos for violin and recorder. This is a wonderful collection to play for Celtic theme events, nautical events, and St. Patrick's day celebrations. Some of the melodies (such as The Greencastle Hornpipe and Galway Bay, included here as an audio sample) are combined as medleys. I’ve kept the melodies true to their source, though as always I grant myself liberty to switch the tune between the two instruments, change octaves, and add embellishments on repeats--something that might also be done in spontaneous performance. While these arrangements were conceived for recorder and violin, you may also enjoy playing them on flute and violin or two violins. In this volume, the suggested recorder range is indicated, but the adaptable recorder player may experiment with different ranges. We prefer the soprano recorder (which sounds an octave higher than written) on reels, jigs, and hornpipes and the tenor recorder (or alto recorder depending on range) for slower, lyrical pieces. Seafarers, captains, and pirates: This one’s for you. And remember to swing those hornpipes!
