I think this tune should be in Dmix, so with Cnat everywhere.Great tune then!
If it is in D then there should be some accidental Cnat, otherwise some phrases are very strange…
What is the source?

Key change, yup

I think it should be in A dorian. Right? If it was D mixolydian there would have to be an F natural and the tonic would be on D, which doesn’t seem right. Definitely should be a C naturals instead of sharps.


Don’t know what I was thinking with that last post — of course, there’s no F natural in Dmix. I think Ador is likely the correct key for the tune, as A is where the tonic is and it seems like the F sharp should stay.
