Month: November 2014

Rose Howard

An exquisite piece written by Sam Sweeney and Rob Harbron, as part of Sam’s ‘Made in the Great War’ project. The full version has a faster version of the tune glued on the end; I’ve left that off this recording.

Part of’s theme of the month for November 2014, tunes with names in the names! This beautiful air was written by Nathaniel Gow, around 1800; popularised in the melodeon community by the playing of Tony Hall.

Here, it’s played on a Bb/Eb Hohner Preciosa, and comes out in Eb.

L’Inconnu de Limoise

Another version of this, played as part of’s tune of the month for November 2014. This time, it’s played on a Hohner 1920’s model in G/C (and played in C). This great mazurka was written by Maxou Heintzen of course.
