The Music of Fairies, Druids, Spirits (and more)


Throughout history, in every culture, there have been tales and legends about supernatural music, the music of fairies,
spirits, music with powers to enchant, heal, charm, mystify and cause mischief.

We have prepared music notation PDF collections of such tunes.

The music notation making up these collections was gathered from many antique books that include notated examples of this music.

Note: The music notation in this first PDF is the basic melodies of these tunes as presented in the antique books and are of course perfect for interpretation and improvisation.
