São Bento Grande de Angloa

Played by Mestre Virgulinho

This is a generally a faster paced game played with ample movements. Rasteiras, tesouras, and vingativas are common in this game.

The toque is identical to São Bento Pequeno, except that the 1/4 note pause is replaced by an additional solto note (i.e. the open note struck below the level of the coin) and the tempo is quicker.
