Preludes from Parthenia

I transcribed a couple of pieces from Parthenia this weekend. The Bull is a particularly neat little thing; I like the way it can’t decide whether it’s major or mixolydian (if I’m using those terms more or less correctly).

Dr Bull, by the way, seems to have been a bit of a Jack-the-Lad, frequently in trouble for adultery, presumably with unwisely chosen women. He looks decidedly Satanic in the wonderful painting at the wikipedia article.
