A soundbite on YT here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKg17lfIZg4

It's also known as Handel's Gavotte, guess it may be a snippet from one of his compositions - anybody know which?

I played it as a 'trumpet solo' on the church organ for a Morris wedding many years ago - it really works well. In case that sounds a bit odd, the 'trumpet solo' was a trumpet stop on one manual, accompanied by flue stops on another manual and the pedals...

Made a welcome change from 'Trumpet Voluntary' (Prince of Denmark's March)!

Very much the same tune is in the Thomas Watts MS from the Peak District, but there it's listed as 'The Turk's March, by Handel'. Googling this title gets you nowhere, and Handel's Gavotte in G major isn't the one, either. Handel wrote another gavotte in Bb, but although that isn't 'Sir Sid's', it bears a resemblance to 'Jack the Horse Courser's Hornpipe' as recorded by Harry Boardman.

I'd be interested to see if anyone comes up with anything on that Handel link.

I seem to remember that there are two Handel's Gavottes in the John Clare collection and #2 is Sir Syd. See- http://www.ibiblio.org/fiddlers/SIR.htm#SIR_SYDNEY_SMITH'S_MARCH. Seemingly not by Handel at all. Just sounds like him.

Sir Sydney Smith was an admiral in Nelson's navy and had a famous victory at Acre in 1798 so too late for Handel.

The tune has been popular amongst English concertina players since Alistair Anderson used it in his Concertina Workshop.

'But I could never get my fingers around it!'

You're not alone!

But these kinds of tunes, with all of their intricacies, make for a much more interesting, challenging & satisfying experience in the playing.

In Chester, where I'm based, there's a new music & dance session being set up from next week & will include mostly Playford's publications.

I'll initiate a new thread to publicise this event - really looking forward to it.

All respondents re 'Sir Sid' thanks for extra info, esp its nought to do with Handel! [but it adds that extra 'highbrow' touch!]

It's also a classic melodeon player's test piece, of course. The bits where the melody does a lot of bobbing around (is there a better technical term for that?) are testing but not impossible, and there are some nice bass runs to be added as well.

I'm going to see if Joe can post my MIDI of what Sir Sidney's Smith March would have been like had somebody actually written it as a "Turk's March." It would have to have been in the belly-dance minor.

It's a fun piece to play and hear the contrast.

Handel, no doubt, would have made it more sophisticated and more quasi-Turkish than I can.

This is from leeneia:

    I've made a MIDI from the abc posted above. I lengthen a few notes togive a person a breather. As I recall, it's how the Battlefield Band did it.


    sirsid.mid (click to play)





    Somebody said long ago that this march was "The Turk's March" by Handel. This proved to be untrue, but I asked myself how 'Sir Sidney Smith's March' march would sound if somebody had actually wanted to make it soundTurkish. (There was a fad for that at one time. See Mozart's Turkish Sonata.)

    Of course, this new march, which I have named 'Sir Sidney Smith's Farewell to Istanbul,' does not give real tribute to the complexity of true Turkish music. But it's fun, and it gives a chance to get out the dumbek and thetriangle.

    I wish I could be here in 100 years when anguished pedants exclaim that Sir Sidney is NEVER known to have gone to Istanbul.

You're welcome, Mr Happy. Note that I converted leeneia's "transgendered" version.

The original, as we have read in TheSnail's link, was composed by an organist named James Hook (1746-1827). The style is clearly an out-of-period imitation of baroque patterns, so I don't think it should be accompanied in a folk-revival style. The longer notes cry for a real counterpoint.

Before leeneia posted hers, I started my own adaptation. This has Sir Sid making a longer stay in Istanbul - it's a semai, one of the classical forms of Ottoman music. I've slowed it down, broken the B part into three 8-bar chunks used as verses with the A part as a chorus, and used the normal sort of changes in mode, meter and tempo that you get in a semai.

Sir Sidney was very familiar with Istanbul and Vienna. His brother was British Ambassador to the Sublime Porte and Sir Sidney went to the Congress of Vienna in 1815 to try to get other European nations to join with Britain's banning of the slave trade.

Chloe (the piper) is still playing. I was at that performance - I don't think it was clapping, but the audience tapping its collective feet on what was a very resonant floor.

It's a b****r when you're competing as the audience always speed up and the player has to decide whether to follow the feet or try ansd make a stand.

If memory serves, she won the intermediate class on that occasion.
See facebook for what she looks like now.

As to Sir Sid, the N'brian version has become modified over the years - the older players had an extra couple of bars in the B part. Don't know why it got dropped.

Don't know if anyone has posted this information., but I have this tune on a cassette tape " From Sewingshields To Glendale"
It just says Trad. so no author.
Alistair Anderson is featured on this tape , so I guess he is probably playing this tune. Also Bill Weddell.

If you can still find this album it is a great album of Northumbrian Music, Song, And Poetry also Featuring the great Kathryn Tickell.
I recommend it to you all.

George Welch does a nice fingerstyle version on his album "Perchance To Dream"
