Greet manuscripts

 

The Greet manuscripts are a set of 21 tunes found, when working in his loft, by Peter Hill who was then living at Littleworth, Greet, near Winchcombe. They were entitled “a few favourite airs adapted for the German (ie transverse) flute”. Many are dance tunes. Other tunes have been included here to show the breadth of repertoire of the folk musician.
