Default Torluath after George Moss

For anyone interested in such things, I've made a couple of small resources to illustrate the torluath as played by George Moss, who's style I am making a close study of.


I hope someone finds them helpful/interesting.

Default Re: Torluath after George Moss

Brilliant. Moss was generally ignored and disdained by the elite. Thankfully, Peter Cooke spent some time with him and recording him.

Let’s call his taorluths “full traditional” - the written evidence for that middle A is extensive, and it was only later that the Army School and the PS combined forces to eliminate it as “redundant”. More’s the pity, because it makes for a lovely contrast to Siubhal rhythms, unlike today’s “modern” style.
