(Say You Love Me and) Hold Me Close

Here’s a weird little 5-time waltz for Christmas. The beat is 1-2, 1-2-3.

So far, I’ve only notated it in ABC, so paste the following into your favourite ABC app to see the dots or hear the tune. I use EasyABC by Nils Libeg (release 1.3.5)

Try this variation: play f-natural at the top of the run in bars 9 and 13. It may fool the melodeon players, if nothing else 😉

Dedicated to Carole O’Connor, who inspired it.
