Strathspey for the Black Watch

Message 54383 · Mikhail Smagin · 5 Dec 2008 23:15:13 · Top

 

                      
Dear Friends!

  I need some help. Does anyone know the proper phrasing of the
last 8 bars of the "Strathspey for the Black Watch". According to
MiiCrib it should be danced as:

1s turn 2s 1.1/2 times on sides (Ladies RH
& Men LH) while 4s dance out end
looping round into original places, 1s dance between 3s (giving nearer hand in
passing) & turn 4s 1.1/2 times (Ladies RH & Men LH) to end 2 3 4 1

I cant imagine, how to phrase it corectly

                                                                         
Thank you in advance.

Message 54385 · Charles Upton · 6 Dec 2008 00:37:16 · Top

Hello, yes the last 8 bars is a bit vague & propose amending it to:-

25-32 1s & 4s dance out ends & cast into original places as 2s & 3s
step up/down & 1s+2s turn 1½ times on sides (Ladies RH & Men LH), 1s dance
between 3s (giving nearer hand in passing) & turn 4s 1½ times (Ladies RH &
Men LH) to end 2 3 4 1

Hope this is clearer.

Strathspey for the Black Watch

Message 54389 · e.ferguson · 7 Dec 2008 17:55:13 · Top

Hello Charles,

Your present crib for this dance (downloaded today) is:

STRATHSPEY FOR THE BLACK WATCH (S4x32) 4C set R Sargent

1- 8 1s & 4s dance down/up into centre, about turn & dance back looping
round to original places, 1s+2s also 2s+4s turn 1½ times on sides (Ladies
LH & Men RH) to 2 1 4 3

9-16 1s+4s dance RH across & LH back

17-24 2s+1s also 4s+3s circle 4H round & back

25-32 1s turn 2s 1½ times on sides (Ladies RH & Men LH) while 4s dance
out end looping round into original places, 1s dance between 3s (giving
nearer hand in passing) & turn 4s 1½ times (Ladies RH & Men LH) to end 2
3 4 1

You now propose the amendment for 25-32:

> 25-32 1s & 4s dance out ends & cast into original places as 2s & 3s
> step up/down & 1s+2s turn 1½ times on sides (Ladies RH & Men LH), 1s
> dance between 3s (giving nearer hand in passing) & turn 4s 1½ times
> (Ladies RH & Men LH) to end 2 3 4 1

I am still not clear on the details.

a. Surely on 1-8 it should read .... 1s+2s also 3s+4s (not: "2s+4s") ?

b. The "about turn": at the end of which bar (1 or 2?), and which way
(all L, all R, inwards, outwards?)

c. (on amended text 25-32) Should it not be "2s & 3s step down/up" ?

d. Should not 3s step up on bar 29-30?

e. What is the phrasing? 2 bars to "cast and step", 3 bars for each 1
1/2 turn, and nil bars for passing between the 3s? Or different?

I would like to see the original instructions.

Greetings,

Eric
