I first wrote this tune in 1971.
I was given a German made wooden treble Recorder for my 14th birthday. I soon tired of the
accompanying booklet of traditional melodies, preferring to compose my own. I pootled around with my
new recorder and I composed this tune complete during the course of the day. I later decided It needed
a tambourine to accentuate the rhythm and I asked my younger sister to accompany me with her new
tambourine. However, her rhythmic sense was dreadful and I tried to accompany myself by tapping the
tambourine with my foot. All good fun.
It wasnt until I was at Art school in college in 1975 when I had the opportunity to do more with it. Part
of my art course included music composition, which involved an old fashioned room sized synthesiser
and banks of reel to reel tape recorders. I tried some ideas for that part of my course exam and taking
them home, used my own reel to reel multi track tape recorder to lay down the other two wind instrument
lines and tambourine tracks. Despite no longer having my piano for the projected harp track (my
mother sold it that year. I didnt think my playing was THAT bad - although I actually DID spend a lot
of time with the back off the piano playing experimental music on the exposed strings!) I recorded it and
my course tutor was suitably impressed.
I no longer have that tape, but I have annoyed many people over the years with renditions of my
Bourree in A Sharp Minor on my trusty old wooden recorder, and later, with the black wood flute I
bought. Now, with the help of Sibelius Music, I can finally share this tune with everyone! I hope you
