This piece is jolly! I don't know who Willson was, but he must have been a happy chap! :wink:

Please let me know what you think.

Thanks.

Beautiful, Lucy! Most enjoyable - I can just imagine the "old-timers" dancing to it.
Thank you for posting.
Robert.

I liked both pices and of course your excelent playing. Both jolly and somber are very clean and each note in its place. It shows that there is music for every mood.
:merci:

Thanks for listening everyone. :)

Sorry, I didn't know it wasn't by Dowland. I see I'm still able to edit the title of the post myself, for the moment. Should I change it to Anon?

Good idea - Dowland gets credited for a lot of things he didn't write :)

:bravo:
I love the tone you get, lucy. Bright and crisp, with just the right weight on each note – not too much, not too little. Lovely.

Very minor observation: listening closely, I wonder whether - on a very micro level of split second timing – you're playing the 3-note chord in bar 11 and again in bar 13 just a very, very tiny fraction too soon, making it sound at that point a touch rushed and breathless. This is me being deeply picky, though, so please feel free to roundly disagree! (BTW, I'm looking at a score arranged by John Francis on http://sologuitarist.net/wilsons_wilde.html).

Yes, you're right about that, but personally, I don't think it sounds bad, or perhaps I've got used to hearing it that way? :wink: Although not strictly correct, it could perhaps be seen as giving that phrase a little "kick" or lift?

Anyway, it's not the only imperfection in this recording, as far as I'm concerned. I could mention others, but someone told me many years ago to not apologise for any deficiencies, before playing something, as it leads people to listen out for them and they may miss the good bits!

Very nicely played. It sounded very upbeat and lively.

I have looked for a score of this piece with right hand fingering but have had no luck. Any general comments on the right hand fingering you used? Have you seen any partitures with a right hand fingering? Thanks.
