Wow very nice!! I always wanted to have this music score, thanks!

Re: Bourrée

Sorry I made a mess in the last two lines, I fixed it now and it should be fine

Re: Bourrée

I learnt this in D Minor on the Boehm flute (which is the key Ian anderson uses when playing the first bit) and am now in the process of learning it in E Minor on the keyed wooden flute. I imagine introducing it as “here is a little German tune which has survived from the start of the 18th Century that I first heard at a rock concert…”

There is a base line to it as well that is well worth getting someone to learn to play with you (or vice versa).

Bourrée, X:2

This includes the second voice (bass line) from the original copunterpoint. I have repeated the bass line an octave higher in the treble clef in case two treble instruments want to play it. This version is completely free of ornaments since I am not sure myself what I want to play here - there are so many ways to slant this piece…

Re: Bourrée

There’s something not sounding quite right in the fifth bar (into the sixth bar) of the second part, Crackpot. Are you sure the last note is D# and not G# (which would be a more natural progression - E7 to Am rather than B7#9(?) to Am)?

Re: Bourrée

Oh, sorry, I got it wrong, it’s an E# you have in that bar, which, enharmonically (i.e., =F), kind of suggests G7 or E7b9 but I’ve no idea how it can be interpreted as E#.
G# fits in with the rising bass line: G - G# - A - A# - B.
