Dear Deni,

There is a very good book of traditional Manx tunes self-published by Mike Patton in London. I have a copy of it somewhere and when I find it I will post the details for you (hopefully later today) and PM you Mike's email address if that's any help to you.

Very best regards,

mcmoo

There are a dozen Manx Gaelic songs with music and translations in Peter Kennedy 'Folksongs of Britain and Ireland' Cassell 1975.

There are a lot of books of Breton music available. I don't know about downloadable resources. I work for a company called Dusty Strings and the manager of the retail shop there is a Breton music fan named Ron Reed who usually has several titles in stock, both songs and tunes. If you can't find anything online you could contact him.

A search for breton at  J C's Tunefinder   will get you a lot of references (though it will of course include "Cape Breton" too) -plenty to be going on with, anyway: available as staff, midi and abc.  Of course, it's best to listen to the music before trying to play it; "sheet music" can only ever be an aide-memoire, and will give you no real idea of the kind of style you need.

Don't know about downloadable resources,but the "Breton tune and dance book"by Dave Shepherd,(Dragonfly Music,10 Gibson street,Newbiggin by the Sea,Northumberland NE64 6PE),is a passable book to start with.I find the dance section more appealing than the sheet music,but some of the most popular breton tunes are there.

there is also the Breizh ar Braziz (hope the spelling is correct),the book in which apparently a good portion of the Breton music heritage was gathered(the breton version of the Child's Ballads),and I'm sure you can order it via internet,although definitely not a single page of it was published on internet(I enquiried around a while ago.)
there are also a couple of threads to refresh on the subject,and if you are looking for a crash view of the breton folk scene the 'Planet Bretagne' double CD set is a good one.I'm sure someone here can help me suggesting the label of the 'Planet ...' series of compilations.

I think I have that book Lena if I can find it you can have it Deni. I have never really used it. There are a couple of other books at the Music Room, Massif Central.Vol 1 &2 - Tunes From Central France, and Dansons La Morvandelle. If you contacted the shop they might be able to give you more details to see if they are of any use to you

The second book Lena mentioned is Barzaz Breiz -Chants Populaires de la Bretagne by the Viconte Hersart de la Villemarque ("Kervarker"); it was first published (I think) in 1839, but seems to have been reprinted a number of times over the years, and can be found at affordable prices via book dealers in France and Canada.

You can get a reprint of A. W. Moore's Manx Ballads and Music from  Llanerch Publishers,  but unfortunately they're closing up shop soon, so don't delay.

If you search for the phrase breton NOT cape through the "Digitrad and Forum Search", by the way, you can avoid most of the Cape Breton references and get a more manageable list of things to look at.

Lucy, I'll see you on the 5th and if you happen to have tapes in your back pocket, I'd love a listen. Will bring my £2.99 personal stereo! Countdown to your birthday, eh?

Meanwhile i'll have a look at JC's tunefinder link this is a new one on me.

Massif Central.Vol 1 &2 - Tunes From Central France

Central France is not Brittany (though likewise fine and and under-appreciated folk music is produced there).

Since this thread has re-appeared after a lull of several years, I'll add a couple of useful resources that have appeared in the meantime:

'A Manx Note Book': includes several song collections and related works:

http://www.isle-of-man.com/manxnotebook/


'Son ha Ton: chansons traditionelles bretonnes' (with staff notation, and often translations into French; includes material from the Barzaz Breiz):

http://perso.wanadoo.fr/per.kentel/

Llanerch Publishers didn't close down as had been feared. It still operates, though now as Llanerch Press:
