Subject: Tune Add: the Charm Bracelet (for Mar 17?)
From: GUEST,leeneia

In the late 1700's, Thomas Moore (Irish) wrote a poem called 'Believe Me, if all These Endearing Young Charms,'. The poem was set to an existing tune, which is still known today.

The other day I asked myself, "What if that tune had been a dance tune? How would it have sounded?" So as a way of passing the time, I went to the piano and turned Moore's love ballad into a jig.

Next I had to think of a name for it, a name that would convey that it is different yet shares something with the old form. So I named it "The Charm Bracelet." We'll be playing it this Sunday to help celebrate St Patrick's Day.   Other people are perfectly welcome to play it as well. I hereby declare it in the public domain.

MIDI posted. See link above. My Chromebook says it can't play MIDI files, and I don't have a PC with me. Anybody know how to set a Chromebook to play MIDIs, or at least can you tell me and leeneia if this one works and sounds good?

So, does the MIDI play?

NO, Joe. I'm sorry to say that it doesn't play. I sent it to your assistant, Artful Dodger, and we'll see what happens.

Wait! Cancel that! It does play if I do it in 2 steps. This is in Windows 7.

1. Right click on the link above that says "Click to Play"

2. Somewhere else on the screen, probably at the bottom, a little box appears that says CharmBracelet.mid

Click on that, and another box appears that says 'Windows Media Player,' and the music starts itself.

Another challenge surmounted!

Thanks. I did something similar once - played 'Greensleeves' and then later, 'Green Sleeves and Yellow Lace' from O'Neill's Music of Ireland. Apparently only one person, a singer, could tell they were basically the same tune.
