Alborada Asturiana, X:2

And also in G, hoping to make it a bit more whistle friendly.

Re: Alborada Asturiana

Alborada I believe means "dawn" from Alba=white. Should be played first thing in the morning!

Re: Alborada Asturiana

I prefer this one. It featured on Liam O Flynn’s album " The Given Note"

Re: Alborada Asturiana

That is indeeed correct. An "alborada" is a type pipe tune played at dawn on special days (Patron Saint days and such) to mark the beginning of the celebrations.

Also, "alba" means white, but also dawn in both Asturian and Spanish.

Alborada Asturiana, X:3

andy Hornby, add the tune correctly, so everybdy can see the dots and so on….
Thanks for posting

Re: Alborada Asturiana

@swisspiper, X3 is not the same tune. It’s a Galician tune called Unha Noite No Santo Cristo and it’s already available here https://thesession.org/tunes/6826.
