    It sounds so familiar but I cannot for the life of me think what it is. So, I wrote to the poster and am waiting for a response. Will post if she answers.

    I have to confess that I've never heard this organ piece before ... I like it a lot and will be interested as well to find out what it is and by whom.

    Sounds like any renaissance dance: Attaingnant, Gervaise etc.

    Well I know one thing ... it's not classical, nor is it baroque. I think it's Renaissance, does anyone else agree? Kind of sounds like Michael Pratorious but I've no REAL idea ...
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    Hi Nick !
    Passau.....great place.

    Rennaissance for sure, but then could be something from Daquin or Balbastre?
    Also Praetorius or Sweelink. Frescobaldi, Palestrina or deMacque.... he he, goin' crazy like this.
    It is possible to be one of these tunes by anonymous composers, left over the years..
    I would like to see the score!!
    Have fun

    I noticed a notation on page 8 of comments : Tabulature oliwe: anonim-suite of dancing... Maybe that helps.. Does sound like a dance in the Rennaissance period.

    I see the organist is named, has anybody thought of contacting her for the name of the piece? There is a considerable resemblance to a madrigal, glee, or similar early vocal piece in the back of my mind.
    Cheers MIKE.
