A new rounds collection - by DADGBE

Subject: A new rounds collection

After more than 30 years of singing rounds at Camp Harmony, the San Francisco Folk Music Club’s annual New Year’s get away, I’ve started a collection of rounds that I’d heard sung there. The goal of the collection is to create sheet music and sound files of each round in an easily e-mailable form.

Each round can now be sent to anyone interested to receive it complete with a printable PDF of the written music along with two small mP3s of the linear melody and the combined parts.

At of now there are 61 songs on the list which grows when I can get publication permissions from writers, other collectors, and publishers.

If any of you are interested in perusing my rounds list, please let me know and I’ll email it to you. You can then ask for any round on the list and I’ll send that file to you.

Many thanks,
Ray Frank

Hello, Joe. I would like the PDF of the sheet music. I don't need the MP3's.

I have another to add to the list: Alles Schweiget, which has a lovely 18th-century sound.

Curt Bouterse is looking for DADGBE so I've refreshed this thread to make him easier to find.

The request came through the Mudcat Annex on Facebook, but wasn't posted to that page because tracking down Mudcat members is a kind of question. He is Curt Bouterse on Facebook.
