Lybeus Distonys

It's been a few months since I did a Moraharpa post. I've also just added a new instrument to my collection, so it seemed appropriate to celebrate with this tune. Lybeus Distonys from the Gresley manuscript. The video shows both it played in a nice key on the nyckelharpa and then a different nice key on the Moraharpa. Then we have a second video of my playing it on a replica of the keyed fiddle found on a church frieze in Sienna in Italy. (This is the same key as the nyckelharpa version).
