Dervish…good job, A.C.!!!

Missing sharp

I’m not much of a music theorist, but it seems like it’s put in a wrong key - C sharp is missing. Or am I wrong?

Listening to the reel right now, and it’s in D Mix, aka no c#.

-Padraig

I’m listening to it now and it’s not in Dmix at all, it’s in B minor with C#s.

Stop fighting or the world will come to an end!

Yup, it’s obviously in Bm.

The World’s End (reel)

Composed by mandolinist Brian McDonagh of Oisin and Dervish fame.

The World’s End

On their Live In Palma double CD, Liam Kelly introduces the tune as having been written by himself and Michael Holmes.

First heard from one of Dervishe’s albums. Love at first sigh!
Thumbs up for Brian McDonagh!

Missing C#

As said above, C# are missing through the entire sheet music. Great tune by the way!

The B and C parts hve tonnes of C#s… 😏

The Reel at the End of the Universe

Is this at the end of time or at the end of the other three dimensions?
