New Year Carol (Benjamin Britten)

New Year Carol (Benjamin Britten)

style or instrument: Fingerdancing, cottonwood dulcimer

musician/member name: Student of Rhythm

streams: 51


I took advantage of my catarrhic bass range to sing (or croak) Britten's "New Year Carol" - a setting of the Welsh folk song "Levy-Dew" as collected by Walter de la Mare. This is a document of my progress: I hope to learn chords to accompany this.

Thanks for the kind words, everyone.

 My bad! Not a single accidental in that Benjamin Britten song! What a jewel of a find. Thank you.

Marvelous! I have one of those cardboard dulcimers and I love it too. It's fun to sit in the sun and not worry about a wooden one melting the glue. And so light and handy to carry around! I immediately recognized what it was by the sound.

You may have some trouble with the Benjamin Britten chords on a diatonic dulcimer, but I'd still play it with the notes I could find.

Welcome to the site.
