The Traditional Games of England, Scotland, and Ireland - Music Wiki

The music for this project is all done! Many thanks to annecel, monkeyclogs, and muddgirl!

Message from PM: Sorry to All but the files were lost in a disk crash. Please replace the items not marked as Redone.


This wiki page is a clearinghouse for volunteer music transcribers working on The Traditional Games of England, Scotland, and Ireland, volumes I and II.

The project contains a number of simple, one-staff melodies, for which the Project Manager, De2164, has asked for midi files.

Because only midi files are requested, you can use any music notation software you like, as long as it can generate a midi file.

Getting Started

Just follow the 6 easy steps below to get started!

1. Go to the Music List below and claim a page by editing the wiki to add "claimed by [yourname]" next to it. (If you're not comfortable editing the wiki, please send a private message to the DP Music Coordinator, LCantoni, and she'll edit it for you.)

2. Use your favorite software to transcribe the music. Don't worry about purely visual aspects of the music - focus only on the sound aspects for the midi file. Where the tempo isn't indicated, just use your best judgment, keeping in mind that these are tunes for children's games and should probably be on the sprightly side.

Some of the pieces may have alternate endings. In that case, please create two full versions of the piece.

If you have any questions, please post them in the Music Team forum, with a link to the page image, or consult the Music Guidelines, or contact the DP Music Coordinator, LCantoni.

3. When you're done notating, save the midi file with a name that indicates the volume, page, and number of the piece on the page (where there is more than one piece on the page). For example, the correct filename for Volume I, page 49.png, first piece, would be:

v1-049a.mid

If you've created two versions of a piece with alternate endings, name them as follows:

v1-049a1.mid

v1-049a2.mid

4. If there are any printer errors or other issues with the piece that should be noted, please include them in a transcriber's note text file with the same filename. For example, the transcriber's note file for Volume I, page 49.png, first piece, would be:

v1-049a.txt

5. Send a private message to the Project Manager, De2164, to let him know what you've done, ask him how he'd like to receive it (by e-mail or some other method), and let him know whether and how you'd like to be listed in the credits for the final product.

6. Edit the wiki to note that the piece is done, e.g., "done by [yourname]." (If you're not comfortable editing the wiki, please send a private message to the DP Music Coordinator, LCantoni, and she'll edit it for you.)

Thanks for your help!

Music List

To claim a page, please edit this wiki and add next to the page listing, "claimed by [yourname]." When you're done, please edit the wiki to change the claim to "done by [yourname]." See the instructions above for file-naming and contacting the Project Manager.

Where a page has multiple pieces, the number of pieces is indicated in parentheses next to the page link. When you claim a page, please do all the pieces on that page. Where a piece is continued on the next page, please claim both pages. Thank you!
