Saint Bernard’s Waltz

This is the 64-bar set tune for the dance of the same name that is sometimes done at ceilidhs in Scotland and England - (and possibly elswhere).

I recently posted a tune called "June Clover", and session user "theboymcdermott" commented that it was often used in Scotland for the dance: "Saint Bernard’s Waltz".

Indeed, "June Clover" is eminently suitable, as it has a similar structure, and is also 64 bars in length.

However, this is the one that should be regarded as the "lead" tune for that particular dance.

Alternate Tune

Note: "June Clover" is a very suitable alternate tune for the "Saint Bernard’s Waltz" dance.

Both tunes are peppered with accidentals, are 64-bars each, and have no repeated phrases.

So if playing them both, it might help to take your cue from the Saint Bernard’s dog, have a small barrel of brandy around your neck for sustenance… 😉
