L'Inconnu d'Limoise...erm what's that mean in English...babelfish won't translate it. :|bl

It means "The Unknown of Limoise". Emmanuelle Pariselle told me that it was written to commemorate an incident when a cemetery in Limoise was being moved to a new site to make way for a new development. Somehow, the identities of the skeletons got mixed up during the process and nobody knows who some of them were any more. This must have been a problem when deciding which skeleton to bury beneath each headstone!  :|bl
oh dear! I suppose they couldn't DNA test them?

So I'll need a 'morning' outfit for this tune if it wins then? ;)

So can people edit their votes now ?? Are we going to see a sudden sprint to the end ??

Cheers

I was really keen on learning L'incconu d'limoise but now thinking (or panicking), what with all the tunes to learn for Witney, it might be better if Princes Royal won as it is already familiar. Hmmm.

I think you are right Lester, and I adore the tune. Think also that I haven't really understood yet the difference between Mazurka and 3/4 time  :|bl.  Maybe if it wins I can spend some time listening to it and learning from others...I suppose that's what it's all about. Must say I am absolutely delighted with all of the Speed the Plough entries. Tune of the month is a wonderful idea.

Cheers

Sandy
 (:) p.s. I'll be sticking with my vote.

Great playing Derek and I love the rich deep voice of the Salterelle, what are keys? (edited to add that I've just spotted the comments on the youtube clip! Low G/C, it sounds grand).

I think that steady pace of this video would be a good starting point for people to learn it by ear:

Is it just me or are there a lot of similarities between L'Inconnu d'Limoise and Michael Turner's Waltz?

Someone, I think Sandy? Steve? said they played the two tunes as a set. As waltzes.
I've been told that Mr Turner's was written by Mozart II, :)
Whatever... we sometimes play MTsW at a dance session in a local park (summers only) . If I remember correctly the last time we played it ... we played it for what seemed like hundreds of time.. and still they wanted more......
I think the two tunes could work well together. Different keys? If so which? and then in what order would you play them?
I currently play MTsW in G.
