    I love this popular sixteenth tune & all i ts variations - 'John, Come Kiss Me Now'. My husband loves this too - coincidentally, he is called John

    Lovely little Byrd snippet - what a wonderfully twangly sound. Coranto, from the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book.

    Here are some Lithuanian dancers showing how the saltarello was danced. Memo to Women: if you must dance outside when dressed in medieval costume, make sure it isn't a windy day.

    This is one of my favourite early music composers, Diego Ortiz, his recercada segunda, played by Voice of the Viol.

    Some more Diego Ortiz - this Recercada I know well and it is on my violin practice list this year.

    I love this Elizabethan Song, beautifully sung here. It's Dowland, apparently. As they say, 'semper Dowland, semper Dolens'.



    The lyrics fit in beautifully with the melody.

    1. What if I never speed? Shall I straight yield to despair,
    And still on sorrow feed, that can no loss repair?
    Or shall I change my love? For I find pow'r to depart,
    And by my reason prove I can command my heart.
    But if she will pity my desire, and my love requite,
    Then ever shall she live my dear delight.
    Come, come, come, while I have a heart to desire thee.
    Come, come, come, for either I will love or admire thee.

    2. Oft have I dreamed of joy, yet I never felt the sweet;
    But tired with annoy, my griefs each other greet.
    Oft have I left my hope as a wretch by fate forlorn;
    But love aims at one scope, and lost will still return.
    He that once loves with a true desire never can depart,
    For Cupid is the king of every heart.
    Come, come, come, while I have a heart to desire thee.
    Come, come, come, for either I will love or admire thee.

    After attending an organ music seminar last weekend I am going to seek out Frescobaldi works for the organ. Some of this "early" music is very pleasurable to play and listen to.

    A Medieval Fiddle or 'Vielle' - tunes include Horses' Bransle - Stanes Morris - and another that's on the tip of my tongue, as I play them all on my fiddle.

    This sound is deeper and more viola-like, though, and I love the chords - the vielle has five strings.

    Gorgeous!

    uplifting and toe tapping first piece. Almost see the court in action in each piece. Enjoyed

    Lovely tender sound - I once had a go on a viol at a music summer school & didn't get on with it, but this makes me think again.
