Rosbif Waltz

This is a French dance tune of unknown name. It was first recorded by an English band by the name of Rosbif, so the tune is known by that name. I play it on fiddle. It is also nice on harp - a mp3 file recording of it on harp is here: http://www.boydsirishmusic.com.au/alison/sound.htm

Rosbif waltz - key

I prefer to play this on fiddle in A minor - it makes for more straightforward fingering - it is nonetheless a lovely tune

cheers
Jerry

Or this version

Thanks Gian, although I was looking for the nice string crossing in the second part. Here is the version I play:

Café du Canal - Pierre Perret

I believe this song has been written by a popular french singer which is call Pierre Perret. I haven’t the cd so I have to check the second part to be sure. for the first half there is no doubt.
I’ve found it sung by somebody else : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bwaFExVgxVY&feature=related

and a comment in french on another website : "Ecrite en 1977 par Pierre Perret et est sortie sur l’album Lily. UN peu éclipsée par la chanson du même nom, Au café du canal est une chanson d’amour. Elle nous raconte, comment une jeune fille rencontrée Au café du canal, a bouleversée la vie du héros de notre chanson. Une musique douce, des paroles à susurrer au creux d’un oreille font de cette chanson l’une de mes préférées."

I know this from the album Janus by Mooncoin, in E minor, with a slightly different B part.

Rosbiv

I think I heard this from the harp playing of Andy Rigby from Victoria Australia, a lovely waltz.
