    Re: Wee Cooper of Fife

    Together with a few friends, I've just tried out the dance "The Cooper's
    Wife". We had great fun, so many thanks to those who wrote enthusiastically
    about the dance and encouraged us to try it. Thanks also to the person who
    sent me the instructions - I was so glad to have them because the book,
    though ordered, has yet to arrive.
    
    We found it a challenge to dance in the ten bar phrases and everyone was
    seen to be counting. In fact one of the dancers, a teacher, decided it was a
    great dance precisely because it would require his pupils to count!
    
    I did feel, however, that we could have used a bit more support from the
    music that we played. After the first tune, which was the Wee Cooper , it
    became much more difficult to hear the ten bar phrases. Does anyone have a
    favourite CD they would care to recommend for this, or any other solution?
