Your favorite tune in an octave and a fourth
I’m involved with the Newport Comhaltas group and they have sugested entering the reagional contest with them. My primary instrument is the italian ocarina which apparently would fit into ‘miscelanious’. Howeaver I have a lot of troubble fining any music of irish origin that will actually work on the ocarina, outside of verry basic tunes. Most of what I play is of english, french, scotish and moddern origin.
The ocarina can play an octave and a fourth, from D to g (D ocarina) or G to c’ (C ocarina) and are fully chromatic within this range. While most irish music requires a range D to a or b, especially the ‘staple’ tunes.
Do you have any sugestions for nice tunes fitting this range.
Also, having an option to search this site by range would be good.
