Miriam’s

F# minor, not A major, but there’s no option for that here. Also known as Mazurka des Petites Fleurs.

Re: Miriam’s ‘Waltz’ (rather than mazurka)

This doesn’t read well as a mazurka in my ears, feet, and general sense. On Zan McLeod’s recording "Highland Soul", track 7, it’s listed as a waltz, and that makes more sense… However, the ‘author’ to this tune, Myriam De Bonte, does choose to associate it by name as "Mazurka dans les petites fleurs", and you can catch a listen here:

It’s a lovely ‘modern’ tune, interesting, sweet, but it still doesn’t quite make it in my ears and senses as one for that particular tradition of dance, but it is a nice ‘listening’ piece…

“Miriam’s Waltz” ~ by Zan McLeod

Though linked to, two recordings in this database, I’ve just managed to chase up a listen and the tune "Miriam’s Waltz" is a completely different tune from the one transcribed here… It would be interesting to hear where this alternate title "Miriam’s" came from?
