There are a finite number of variations on a theme of diddly-diddly-dee available to the 4 strings of a fiddle.

And Copeland used all of them before he finished his intermediate composition lessons. Of course these tunes came most from the English and Scotish settlers in the Appalachians. Not very bright these people - could have done much better for themselves.

Vaughan Williams is another who looked to traditional folk music for inspiration.

Same opinion of him - only his music is more insipid.

I must admit that I am not a fan of Vaughan Williams.

Aaron was just a musical hack - couldn't even come up with his own tunes needed to plagiarize the countryside for his musical melodies.

Fanfare For A Common Man is ace !!.....and then Emerson Lake & Palmer improved it !!....which is nice ! :)

But, my load - er, Lord - neither Copeland nor von Williams can hold a candle to even CPE Bach. These latter day musicologist are just composing hacks.
