Drive the Cold Winter Away, v2.0
Simple Harmony

Once you have mastered this version, you can complexify it by playing a triad in the lower hand, based on the lowest note. So, where the lowest note is a "D", instead play (counting up), D-F-A; where there is a G, play G-B(flat)-D; etc. You can arppegiate it upwards if you like.

Based on the 1651 ed. of Playford, as appears in "The Complete Country Dance Tunes from Playfor's Dancing Master", Barlow.

The original was in "3", but should be played in 6; that's why half the barlines are dotted.

Harmonization is in a Renaissance style (as opposed to Baroque).
