Here are some favourite airs.   Out of respect for the tunes, I have kept the arrangements simple and uncluttered, no doubt breaking some of the formal rules of harmony.   Dynamics, tempos etc are left to the performers.   As far as I am aware, none of the tunes is subject to composer's copyright, and as far as the arrangements are concerned feel free to use them as you wish, but an acknowledgement would be appreciated.
