Here is another jolly crowd romping through the countryside in a horse-drawn carriage.  Morley makes it very clear that the countryside in question is English: the piece is full of hunting horns and post horns and could easily be a Dickensian Christmas postcard.  "The Jovial Huntsman" is another of Morley's compositions that is designed to create this bucolic, rural fantasia.

Tapis d'Orient takes us on a magic carpet ride over England's green and pleasant land. Surely such a magical meeting of East and West had never been seen before!

Very cool tune (well played!) and one I worked on some 10 yrs ago whilst on vacation in New Orleans. I never could get all the transitions (part to part) to work for me. I could play all the parts (esp the post-horn and irish-sounding dance) quite well...but just couldn't string 'em all together into a single piece. Ah well, I did enjoy working it all out. I have full TAB if anyone wants it.

Excellent choice again Tony... err Tapis.  There seem to be loads of snatches that make you think of other tunes in that one.. great stuff.

Joel said that much of Morley's stuff seemed out of his reach. Joel, as Tony mentions, try out Jovial Huntsman it is a superb piece and will fall and flow under your fingers in no time at all.
