Misc. Comments

  • Regarded (in some sources?) as doubtful and more likely to be by Scheidt. Grove Music does not have such a piece in their work list for Sweelinck, although Leonhardt, Annegarn and Noske have it in their SwWV list. The New Grove (1980) lists the composition among the works undoubtedly by Sweelinck (vol. 18, p. 411); in Seiffert's second edition the title is Balletto del granduca (wrongly spelled in the reprint uploaded on IMSLP).
  • The collection this is from puts it in a section on "variations", so it is undoubtedly a set of variations on a popular tune, and many composers may have used the tune as a basis for their works, but the actual variations in this case seem to be exactly like the variations by Scheidt, as one can hear on various recordings (IMSLP does not have the music for the Scheidt version at present), which is the reason for the disputed attribution.
