Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer

Description: A perennial favorite.  Fiddle-friendly key of D.  Knowledge of Italian markings “Da Capo al fine” needed.  Da = to, Capo = Cap/top/beginning, al = until, fine (fee-nay) = finish/end.  These kind of directional markings were invented to save ink, and effort, back when most of the famous composers lived and worked in Italy, hand writing their parts with a feather and ink!  The Italian just stuck… I know it would make much more sense to just write it in English (or whatever language you use)!
