Medieval and Renaissance Music for FluteEdited by Walsh for Flute aloneIncludes SCORE ONLY and CD
Come play music written by kings and clowns, Ladies and lawyers, dance masters, doctors, and troubadours. Welcome to the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Creativity flourished throughout the times that produced writers, Artists, and scientists such as Dante, Chaucer, Shakespeare, Michelangelo, da Vinci, and Galileo. That inventiveness is evident in the imaginative and eloquent music in this collection. Among the melodies are a Portuguese troubadour's "Song for a Friend" written almost 800 years ago, John Dowland's "Midnight", silenced from the mid-1600's until the discovery of Margaret Board's Lute Book in 1970, and a beautiful and haunting song written by a Scottish Lady. There are over 40 tunes in this beautiful collection.Contents: 1) Corne Yards 2) The Dream of Arren 3) Branle & Branle Gay 4) Lamento di Tristano 5) La Rotta 6) Italiana 7) Volta 8) Spagnoletta 9) A Merry Ronde 10) Tordion 11) Christ Has Risen 12) Saltarello 13) Carmen Vernale 14) Fayne Would I Wed 15) Will You Walk the Woods so Wild 16) Royal Estampie #2 17) Shall I Come Sweet Love to Thee 18) Ungaresca 19) Sellenger's Round 20) Haulberroys 21) My Lady Hundson's Allmande 22) Mr Dowland's Midnight 23) One Yeir Begins Ane Other Ends 24) Packington's Pound 25) The Market Traunts 26) 15 More selections.
