    1. Thanks Danette :-)) I think it's the right way up, as I can see notations such as 'allegretto'. I've no idea what the music is though.

  4. I only read music minimally.. this looks like a challenging piece for my skills! Funny - my most recent post is "key" related, as well!

    1. Hi Amanda. It looks very complicated to me, but that's because I don't read music notation at all :-))

  5. I would have to sit at my piano and try it out for sure, but the key is A flat major or F minor and what you have is a piece of music in the base register. Might not even be written for piano, but another instrument, although I could play it. I had piano lessons for at least 10 years, mainly in the classics and still play now and again today - we have a fully sized electric piano at home. Otherwise a good entry and nicely keyed.

    1. Hi Pat !! I'm glad someone could actually tell me the answer to my question. I photographed this manuscript in a Welsh museum, but I didn't make a note of what it was or who had written it. If you can read it enough to play it, let me know what it's like :-))

  6. To think I was taught how to write music like this in the convent and have forgotten all of what I learnt. Shame on me!
    I love the photo, it brings back some nice memories.

    1. Thanks Shayna :-)) I never did learn to read music, I always played 'by ear'.

    1. Thanks Loretta :-)) It wasn't easy to photograph, as it was in a glass case. Thankfully I managed to avoid any reflection.
