Larsen - A new font for notating Irish traditional music.
Now available for free downloading.
David Armstrong of Alberta, Canada, has developed a new font called Larsen. This font (for PC and Mac) makes it easy for everyone to make use of Grey Larsen's new notation system for ornamentation in Irish Traditional Music. To learn how to make full use of this notation system, you will want to refer to Grey's book, The Essential Guide to Irish Flute and Tin Whistle. (See http://greylarsen.com/store/books.php)
A free overview of this notation system, A Guide to Grey Larsen's Notation System for Irish Ornamentation, is available, in PDF format, at The Irish Tune Bank. Just go to http://greylarsen.com/services/tunebank/vault.php#freeinfo. There you will find this and three more free articles, plus ITM instructional materials in the form of tune packets.
With Grey's permission, David Armstrong is offering the Larsen
font as a free download. To get the font, please go to:
