Welcome to the Music Page! Here you will find lots of sheet music and information about the music groups to which I belong.

First, I have three separate musical identities, so to speak.

is my personal musical performance. A schedule of where you can find me performing is also listed here. FIRST ALBUM, OF DYVERSE MYNSTRALSYE, NOW AVAILABLE!
is a small band of three members that plays Celtic and folk music. We play at local venues such as coffee houses, folk concerts, renaissance faires, and the like.
was a small band of four members that plays renaissance and folk music. Their CD is still available from CD Baby but the band is otherwise defunct.
is the SCA band which I musically direct and variously manage. Ranges in size from about six or so to as large as twelve or thirteen. Plays Renaissance dance music at SCA events. Most of the sheet music on this page is for this group.

MUSIC ARCHIVE

Below is a listing of sheet music, mostly medieval, renaissance and folk. The first large pile is dance music geared mostly toward the SCA. The second pile is performance music, for solo or group. The third set is folk and miscellaneous bits that I've gathered over the years and felt able to put up here. Except where specifically noted, this music generally holds no copyright for the basic melodies (as most are historical or traditional), and may be performed freely. If you are specifically using my arrangements for professional performance or recording (ie, something you are getting money for), I would ask that recognition be noted, but I'm not after royalties.

There has been a couple of requests as to where to start with this list (now over 100 pieces). So immediately below are the 10 most common played pieces, that should give you a decent start if you are looking to jump in.
