For some time now I have periodically made transcriptions of early pieces mainly for my own enjoyment. My own interest in early music runs parallel to my interest in Western folk music. It was intriguing to consider the characteristics that are common in both. I discovered that even whole pieces, thought to exist only in manuscript, occasionally cropped up remarkably intact in current folk playing, and instruments long assumed silent were found to be still sounding in remote areas of Europe. I began by taking a medieval dance tune and treating it as I would a jig or reel, or drawing on contrapuntal practice in making arrangements of folk songs. In this video lesson I present five of these arrangements that I hope you will enjoy. NTSC all region. 95 minutes.
