Sancho, Ignatius - Minuet 7th - Video

Here is a new video from a new composer : Ignatius Sancho (1729 - 14th December 1780), black English composer.

Here is the 7th Minuet he wrote. Initially for Harpsichord, I transcribed for guitar.

The score is coming :bye:

Thank you so much Aitua for transcribing and sharing such a lovely piece. You made me discover that composer. I can't believe I used to live in Greenwich for a few years and and did not know about Sancho Ignatius.

Greenwich Royal Naval College is a perfect setting for your video.

Interestingly it seems to me that instead of the usual ABA minuet he Sancho Ignatius put aside a contrasting middle for for somethings that sounds like AA' with A' being like a dominant version of A. Surprisingly I also learned thanks to you that AA' minuet can work quite well as the A' brings sufficient contrast while still reminding of A.

Thanks to you I learned 2 things today. You made my day! :)
