A number of interesting European instrumental versions also survive from the lachdimae century. Dowland, of course, was in Nuremburg inso it is not beyond the realms of possibility that this piece may have originated from him in some sense. This study has only scratched the surface of a large topic and would be hugely enhanced by similar research into the multitude of similarly-transmitted English pieces that were popular across late-sixteenth and early-seventeenth century Europe.

Nicholas Gryffith his Galliard Schildt and Scheidemann also experimented with sesquialtera passages, something Van den Hove himself dabbled with briefly in the final division of Scheleand which is briefly foreshadowed towards the end of Dd. To single out just one instance, the highest pitch of the very first chord is carelessly omitted, thus ruining the famous descending tetrachord.
Example 6 The somewhat intriguing rubric attached to this piece seems to pqvan that it is an intabulation of a lost consort setting, something which is further supported by the fact that a point dowlnd melodic imitation disappears from the texture during bars For larger-scale repertory studies, such as vowland long-overdue assessment of all English instrumental music in 17 th -century Continental sources, the laborious work of bar-by-bar comparison could be much eased by intervention from analysis software.
Whilst the lachrrimae contour of the English piece has been both eroded bar 4 and elaborated bar 6 in places Example 3the Romers version is largely harmonically consistent with its probable model, and displays the characteristically English auxiliary note in bar 2.
The adjacent page to this includes another lute part apparently in D minor; it is presumably a duet part for a different sized instrument pitched a fifth lower or a fourth higher, unless it is a simple consort part for a D dowlznd setting analogous with those in Morley and Cambridge Consort. Another interesting feature almost unique to these two lachrumae only the version for violin and bass instrument in Schermar has it too is the dominant chord substituted into bar 10 Example 8b.
The version in Thysius compiled? This process would have been exacerbated by the copying of flawed printed versions into manuscript anthologies with all errors intact; the direct copy of this one in Nauclerus serves as an excellent case in point.
In some later sources, the piece has been adapted for an instrument with additional bass strings. Captain Digorie Piper his Galliard Another instance of a Continental lute arrangement derived from the English G minor version can be found in Fuhrmannascribed to V[alentin] S[trobel].
Simon Groot has recently shown that much of the music in this print is taken from printed sources either from England or with strong English connections, and has suggested that the cittern parts were lachrimea either by Valerius or by someone within his circle, since they are derived from the vocal versions of the melodies. Virtuoso passage-work remains prominent throughout however; this setting is one of the most elaborate of all lute versions.
Because most of my Intavolations are never heard before, I decided to make a simple computer synthesized audio file for hearing control.
Two sources, Hirsch and the fragmentarypreserve another, possibly earlier, A minor setting. Earle of Oldenburge and Dowwland. George Whitehead his Almand. It is not always clear whether the many variants contained in this print arise from typesetting errors or constitute genuine attempts at recomposition.
Contents 1 Performances 1. Indeed, the clumsy attempt at an inner dowlaand suspension in bar 4iii-iv perhaps a misprint? Mistress Nichols Almand Creative Commons Attribution Non-commercial 3. Unfortunately, such are the huge number of settings, derivatives and imitations it lafhrimae that only a small sample can be fruitfully discussed here. These pieces a two-part vocal version in D minor, a cittern piece in D minor and a lute setting in G minor were clearly not intended for simultaneous performance, since they all carry the melody with varying degrees of elaboration and differing harmonic detail.
Henry Noel his Galliard However, the keyboard composers are able to exploit a contrapuntal dimension unavailable to Van den Hove and lutenist-composers in generalallowing them to make imitative interplay of paramount importance in their settings.
It is our belief that the work reported in this paper represents about the limit that could be undertaken manually within a reasonable period of time.
This is a disparate group, with no clear sequential relationship discernible between them although this is perhaps unsurprising when one considers that their period of compilation spans approximately 35 years.
