Hi, In reference to the D04 score I think it used to be in with D01 - D04. I may be mistaken but I had it before as well and I was only in that access group.

This is beautiful peice of music, and a great modern sounding arrangement with colourful chords. Reminiscent a bit of the Simon and Garfunkel arrangement, but not the same. I will learn this.

I live in Scarborough :)

Scarborough had a large and famous fair, given a royal Charter by King Henry 3rd. Its boom years were about 1250 to 1400. It lasted from mid August to the end of September. It was mostly for trading, but there were plenty of fun and games to be had. Visitors came to it from as far apart as Scandanavia and the Mediterranean. I picture a colder and more Northern version of the Marrakech souk.

The fair declined gradually, eventually finishing in about 1800. There is still an event of the same name every year, but its a almost unrecognisable echo of a the past. :(

I know I'm a bit late, but I've only just seen you play this piece, after I got access to the D04 PDF and saw the arrangement of Scarborough Fair. It's long been a favourite of mine, but I really wanted to find something that combined Paul Simon's version with the original. I've come across a few bland arrangements before now, and none hit the mark. But this one is perfect! What a super performance of a beautifully arranged piece of music. I'm putting this one straight in my repertoire folder to memorise and play forever. Thank you so much M. Delcamp.
