    Paul's got a point. I enjoyed reading about the debate w/ tony's wife. it may not be a typo (working-waking) but I don't know about the title as derived from Sicilian dialect. Canoro (Canora) composed it and gave it its title; he was northern Italian. I doubt that di Bella would have renamed Canora's title to fit his own Sicialian dialect. Matteo believed it meant 'between waking and dreaming' Sogno =dream...so if sonno is as Paul suggested, a cognate of somnumbulist, then what we have here is a sleep-walking mandolinist. LOL Actually, "tra la veglia e la sonno" is an idiomatic phrase for "half awake" So this title is abbreviated from that phrase I believe. I think it's time to put this topic to rest..rather to sleep.

    Thanks Jim, no, unfortunately I didn’t. Well I didn’t write them out but may have gathered them together, can’t remember!
    I don’t know where I found the .abc files, maybe an Italian site. My skills as an archiver were pretty poor at the time!

    The unfortunate part is that when printing out .abc files there’s often loads of interesting information about sources in the N: and other parts but these are sometimes lost on the final piece of A4. What I do now is to find and replace N: to W: which types out the info at the bottom of each tune.
    There are some great vids with tunes too, would be nice to connect those .abc files, especially for contemporary tunes.

    One should note that these arrangements are almost all from the fabulous, renowned accordionist: Riccardo Tesi. I love it when mandolinists derive their music from accordionists and rely on them to archive and preserve dance traditions. Some of these titles are played by Tesi on YouTube.

    That's what I know, Sher.

    And then there are novice fisarmonica players like me, who derive their (limited) playing skills from their mandolin playing.

    Ricardo T plays an organetto, as y'all know, and here is a great Italian site with a wide assortment of tunes for the organetto, or other squeezeboxes, that can be played on the mandolin, too, of course.

    Thanks Mick, some nice links there.

    Here are a couple of playlists for La Ciapa Rusa, referenced in the above .abc file. (Thanks Brian).
    I use the .abc to get an idea of how the tunes feel on the fretboard and then play YT vids from the respective towns for each tune to play them by ear (lots of variations).
    I love this music, lot of fun to play and to dance!

    My brother and cognata were over for dinner last night and after the gelato and, davvero, un po' delle bevande sonnifere, we moved the tables and chairs for a little waltzing.
    I was stuck squeezing, but it's always a pleasure just the same.

    Thanks for the links! Great stuff and good fidelity....
