    Re: Learning to read music for Mandolin

    Following up on this, it is also interesting to look through the back issues of the BMG Magazine (which has the longest unbroken publication run among the mandolin periodicals) and observe changing...
  5. Re: String gauge for an OM to Mandocello test?

    While this is correct, I note that my Suzuki mandocello also has a 22.5" scale and I'm using standard TI mandocello strings without problem. I've tried out the D'Addario J78 mandocello strings in...

    Re: Love Theme duo arrangement

    That is lovely -- thanks for the link!

    It may be worth saying that this is Ennio Morricone's Love Theme from Nuovo Cinema Paradiso, not Nino Rota's Love Theme from The Godfather. Arranged in duo...

  16. Re: Mandocello solo and duo recordings playlist

    It's been a few months since I've added to my mandocello playlist. Here is a baroque piece I've recorded today, as a duet of mandolin and mandocello:

    Philipp Heinrich Erlebach (1657-1714) was a major German baroque composer in the era just before J.S. Bach. However, the large majority of his compositions were lost in a fire after his death, so...

  20. Re: Looking for Schottis Fran Mulang sheet music

    I'm pretty sure it is the same tune. Sophia Karlsson's arrangement doesn't have much of a dance character, but here is the same tune played for an actual dance: Schottis från Malung. For...
  21. Re: Looking for Schottis Fran Mulang sheet music

    Hi Leslie,

    I think the correct spelling is "Schottis från Malung", after the town of Malung in Dalarna. The most comprehensive site for Scandinavian dance is, which doesn't have a...
  22. Re: Thomas Tallis: Hear The Voice And Prayer (c. 1560)

    Thanks, Jim!

    To avoid confusion, the use of the "Kyrie" text in the score I linked to in my post is not by Tallis -- John Smith, who uploaded it to Musescore, used the original Tallis composition...
