Constitution Square

This is one of mine.

It isn’t really a jig, but 6/8 serves to notate the metre nonetheless. It’s really a sort of march, or stomp. However, who knows, it may fit the steps of some barn-dance, e.g., in our traditions.

Constitution Square is the big square in Athens in front of the Greek Parliament which has seen much drama since the start of the recent Greek economic and political troubles.

I wrote the tune with our own lookout in mind as well as that of the Greeks, fired up by surfing Greek songs of defiance on YouTube.
