Default Re: When the Battle's O'er - How many verses?

I can't recall instrumental tunes being counted in verses.

Because if we're thinking of the vocal piece it's not just verses, but verses and choruses, and instrumental bits as well, for example a map of a song might be IVVCVVCIVVCC.

Instrumental pieces are thought of as having parts, A, B, C, D, etc.

Sometimes the pipe version adds material not found in the song, for example the pipe tune "The Wearing Of The Green" has and A part and a B part but the song "The Rising Of The Moon" though it has verses and choruses all use the same part, the A part of the pipe tune repeated over and over.

Likewise traditional Hymns generally have just one part, and don't fit the pop music verse/chorus/break etc format.
