Hi Peter,

That's what I've done in general (except with dances on my web site
which are still under development). However, it's sometimes worth
accepting "folk process" changes - how many people dance both promenades
in Ian Powrie's Farewell to Auchterarder in the same direction (as
written)?

It's not a mark two. It's just presenting the same instructions in a
different format. In Dunedin Dances 4 it's published as a 160-bar
dance, which I feel misses the point. See
http://www.scottishdance.net/dances/TheOneOClockCanon.html to see my
preferred publication format - a 64-bar dance, marking the point on bar
33 where 2nd couple start from bar 1. Of course, when I call it I tend
to call it very much how Dunedin published it, but that's a different
matter.

BTW - to all those who want to mail me directly - please always send
mail to my scottishdance.net address. I can read this at work, but I
don't read work mail at home. Thanks!
