Note: The dry white sands on the north-west side of the Isle of Eigg are said to produce a musical sound when walked upon.
Note on [27-28]: originally 2 PdB. modified by Drewry to SkCh. O. Otto says best variant is corners in PdB, 1c in SkCh
(note by Drewry: This is really two successive 3c dances of 32 bars, the figures of bars 9-24 being similar.
(Hint: In all ½ turns and ½Reels face dancer of own sex).
Espagnole: both W lead RHJ to M side, cross and cast back to exchanged places while Men cross to W side, lead RHJ back to M side crossing to exchanged places ; all turn P EH (2,1)
3c+4c cross on 2nd chord(1,2,3x,4x). This dance has top/bottom symmetry
Canon. A new top couple starts dancing every 16 bars, and each continues dancing until they reach their original positions, so that the dance starts from the top, and ends from the top. 1c face out after the chord.
On bar 48 the order will be 4,5,3x,1,2.
On bar 64 the order will be 5,1,4x,2,3.
On bar 80 the order will be 1,2,5x,3,4 and 1c and 2c stop.
On bar 96 the order will be 1,2,3,4,5, all stopped.
