Spanish Dance

This is a tune from an old book in Kelvingrove Museum, Glasgow. It’s a tattered old book in a display cabinet, with the music handwritten and signed ‘DC’.

I took a photo of the page and here’s the result!

The A-part = "The Dingle Regatta"

Key signature: D Major

Sorry, there’s that key confusion again, it’s actually ‘G’, with the raised 4th, or C#… So, moving to A, with for direct comparison with the transcription here ~

Is there a date and/or author assigned to the manuscript?

Re: trabscription

Hi

Cheers for the tips, I’ve never submitted a tune before so advice is much appreciated!

Didn’t see a date when I was there…I’ll drop in to the museum one day during the week and see if I can spot one.

Re: transcription

I went by the key signature on the manuscript - I must have got the ABC wrong :S
