The Gladiator

Bit of a strange reel. Unknown composer.

The A Part is 8 bars, B Part is 16 bars, and the C Part is almost identical to the A Part. Structuring it as AABB didn’t quite flow the same way as ABBC.

Re: The Gladiator

(Scratch that, re-structured it as AABB).

Tell us where you got it, why you like it, and so on…

Re: The Gladiator

Looks like it came from Ryan’s Mammoth Collection, where it’s credited to G L Tracy.

Re: The Gladiator

Thanks Nigel! I found it on a Newfoundlander’s tune page, listened to the midi, enjoyed it, and decided to share it. Trying to Google information on it didn’t prove fruitful for me.
