Fanfare of the Salt

In 1778 Thomas Pennant, during his Tour into Wales, recorded a manuscript, then in the possession of Lewis Morris of Anglesey, of ancient music that held musical notation of a 'Fanfare of the Salt' collected by Robert ap Huw in 1620.
Robert ap Huw made a note that the music would have been played when salt was brought to the table of King Arthur and his knights.

The notation has been brought up to date by Simon Chadwick and a recording upload to Youtube.
