This is proving frustratingly difficult.

I know exactly how you feel (if that's any consolation)

The abc tunesearch results depend on how you enter your abc search. Typing FG A2A2F2|GA found nothing useful but FG A2 A2 F2|GA found 104 hits, including Buttered Peas.

I first used the Gore/Breathnach Theme Code Index methods for sorting traditional tunes whilst building the FARNE archive. I was greatly impressed by the effectiveness of the printed collection We tested the book working with students from the Traditional Music degree course. As a system for cataloguing 18thC and 19thC Scottish melodies the system is flawless. The failing is that the method requires massive input to widen it's effectiveness. The efforts made by John Chambers to extract Gore/Breathnach codes form abc are laudable, but need much more work to be effective.

That's useful to know. Thanks, Ian.

Currently, and for the last few years, the Village Music Project files on the main site are out of date due to technical issues. Anahata is moving the site to a new home in the New Year and then it will be up to speed again hopefully. It will have the same url. In the meantime all the revised files and new files, and some that are not VMP files, can be found on my webpage http://www.cpartington.plus.com/Links/ChrisPartingtonsLinksPage.html

It's on its new hosting already, and has been since October 27th. Same URL, same out of date files moved unchanged from the old site.

Getting the files updated is down to John Adams. I'm willing to help, but I don't know what needs doing. I can make you a site admin, if you like...

Should we add the Playford Omnibus dots/ABC's here?  Great resource, I think via Pete?
