Melancholy Galliard

Composer: John Dowland (1563 - 1626)

John Dowland (1563 - 1626) was an English or possibly Irish Renaissance composer, lutenist, and singer. He is best known today for his melancholy songs such as "Come, heavy sleep", "Come again", "Flow my tears", "I saw my Lady weepe" and "In darkness let me dwell", but his instrumental music has undergone a major revival, and with the 20th century's early music revival, has been a continuing source of repertoire for lutenists and classical guitarists.

This Galliard(galliard is a vigorous 16th-century European court dance)is arranged for guitar and is one of RCM (The Royal Conservatory of Music) grade 8 repertoire.
