Re: Ed Reavy Compositions

If you search on ‘Reavy’ you’ll find a number of relevant threads, inc. a similar enquiry I posted about a year ago.

On response to mine was from joefidkid:
‘I converted Ed’s son Joe Reavey’s ABC to sheet music and created a downloadable PDF available here:
https://docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/81b8ee_6288c3c41d6b4b03b1f07ef2fa960b0a.pdf.

I assume this is as near a full collection as you’d find.

I look forward to the Paddy Fahey thread :D

Re: Ed Reavy Compositions

Calum, I love those compositions a lottt
But don’t think I will go for that thread.
The thing is because all the tunes are called Paddy Fahey’s, It is very easy to make a search in the tune section and have the full list.

Re: Ed Reavy Compositions

Thanks GW! The idea is to try to have the list of all the music scores that are done in thesession. I am using a list similar to that one.

Re: Ed Reavy Compositions

I realize it’s not in ABC format, but what about the freely distributable PDF book, in music notation, with notes, put out by Ed Reavy, Jr. & The Ed Reavy Foundation? Mine is version 2.0 - 91 pages (although no index, alphabetical or otherwise). Wouldn’t this really be considered definitive enough?
"The Collected Compositions of Ed Reavy"

Re: Ed Reavy Compositions

Of course it would be! This discussion is just a compilation of all the music scores that are in this website.

Re: Ed Reavy Compositions

Perhaps Jeremy would consider adding a COMPOSER link for the database, then it can be kept updated & link from/to the tunes as well as be searchable by Composer. Seems that would be ultimately easier to complete your listings & to maintain the lists.

Re: Ed Reavy Compositions

Yes you are right kkrell, that would be good. In the meantime I cannot think of a better solution than this.
