Middle Earth

Post by philamor » Fri Mar 20, 2009 7:29 am

The other day I picked up a second hand copy of the book - Lord of the Rings - with over 1100 pages - an epic book and truly epic trilogy of films. I did not set out to compose an epic jig, but this does feel like a tune that is ever flowing, relentless, as the film depicts. I tried it for sight reading practise on my students the other night and the movement made the tune look complex, which it is to a degree, but the flow led them to master the parts quite quickly, so really its quite deceptive, the pattern being woven coming through and so not beating them.

If you cannot write a tune down that you can play so that they are identical, how can you truly say you know the tune!
