>Could someone who knows both North American and British usage for music
terminology please post a translation table for half note/quarter
note/etc. vs. crotchets and quavers? Much obliged--<

delighted, unless I'm beaten to the punch (again) :-(

Full Semibreve
Half Minim
Quarter Crotchet
Eighth Quaver
Sixteenth Semi-quaver
Thirty-second Demi-semi-quaver
Sixty-fourth Hemi-demi-semi-quaver
128th Flea-fart (brass instruments only)

And for those enamoured of the italian written instructions on how the
composer/arranger qualitatively recommends tempo and dynamics, I am
reminded of a very old limerick. Those easily offended cut to the next
message NOW Those with curious or dirty minds page down.

A young violinist called Cleo
Was seduced by a cellist from Rio
As she took down her panties
she cried "no Andantes,
I want this Allegro con brio" !
