Orac Tune Req: Rose of Allandale (9) RE: Rose of Allandale 18 Oct 02

Thanks Malcolm, I had just gone away and done a 4/4 midi file but yours is much better. I prefer the 4/4 timing as it gives the song a brighter feel. The 1848 music descibes it as a quickstep and is in 2/4 which as you say is a march, although it is usually in 4/4. I think you are saying the the 3/4 timing is an improvement but I have to disagree. I would also point you to the music for Raglan Road which also is in 4/4 time. Most sing it in 3/4 and it sounds dreadful.
