Simon,

thanks for your comments. I appreciate the points you make.

I haven't been able to try this out yet, but I will do so soon and bear your comments in mind.

In the dance I have thrown together (see now http://www.scottap.com/scd.dances/thorncliffe.html) I have decided to go for Strathspey time, so this problem might be less acute than for quick time. we'll see.

Alan
