Subject: RE: Lyr Req: If I Had a Ribbon Bow
Hello leeneia

Many thanks for your offer to send me a MIDI of 'If I Had a Ribbon Bow'. I'm not sure if sending it via this forum will work, but we can give it a try. Being an alto, I can reach the high Fs if the notes are short and quite widely spaced throughout a piece, but I struggle if they're sustained, frequent or close together, so perhaps the song would be better transposed so that the highest note is around D/E flat. Thanks also for offering to do this.

Unfortunately, from the point of view of getting the book 'Seven Kentucky Mountain Songs', I don't live in the USA, though I may be able to order it via the internet, with any luck from a supplier in Britain. And thanks for the unwitting compliment, but I'm not at school! I'm a mature student attending evening classes in singing at an adult education college in London. I doubt whether I can make use of the facilities there to download and print a MIDI, but my husband's a whizz on computers, so he should be able to help me with this at home.

With thanks again for your kind offer - Karen
