St Georges Day

This is one that gives limited scope but as it is this Sunday I thought to give it a go.

That's two very good performances of two very well know tunes.
Ken .. liked the 'kettle drum' at the end.
Brian .. it's always good to hear a piano being played.

A difficult category to add to. Maybe include anything with the words dragon, England .. or red?

I googled St Georges day and found this piece listed. Can you explain what connection it has. Beats me. "A Whiter Shade of Pale"

regards Ken

Hi Ken, I can't see the connection with St George but nevertheless, a very nice version of Whiter Shade of Pale. :D :D

I can't think of a tune with St George in the title but I found one called "King William's March", sounds English enough to me. :)
It is by jeremiah Clarke. It says on the music that it is a short piece for keyboard taken from a manuscript dated 1704-07, in the British Library.
I thought harpsichord appropriate.
Afraid it only recorded on one channel , really must buy new leads. I converted it to mono.
