Players of all kinds of instruments including flute, fiddle, mandolin, recorder, whistle, guitar, harp and more can use this collection of music which is popular at modern renaissance festivals. The music is presented simply, with melody lines and chord symbols, allowing for a wide range of interpretation. In addition to many period dance tunes, the book contains a selection of vocal numbers with lyrics included. Each selection is accompanied by text to suggest ideas for performance, place the music in a modern festival context and provide useful information to those interested in studying historical sources of early music. Cantiga's arrangements of some of the tunes in this book can be heard on the companion recording. They are played at a listening tempo by the ensemble: Wooden flute or recorder, fiddle, cello, harp and percussion.

  • January 12, 2012 Not Perfect, But Well Done

    This book contains far too many musical errors, but it was obviously a labor of love for the author. They included quite a few beautiful pieces in the collection, including some lesser known ones. The CD is nicely done, and the instrumental arrangements are good. I recommend this book to...

    all who love to play Renaissance music on any instrument.
