Misc. Notes:

Because most of my Intabulations are never heard before, I decided to make a simple computer synthesized audio file for hearing control. (In this Synthesized performance, I replaced the voice samples with woodwinds)

Misc. Notes:

Intabulation in French lute-tablature (g-Lutes). If performed I would look forward about a small reference to my efforts.

Misc. Comments

  • According to Grove Music, the preface to the Psalmes, Sonets and Songs collection includes "a clear explanation that most of the songs had originally been for one voice and instrumental consort but had been adapted to words in all the five parts." However, this particular song does not have the symbol next to it in the work list that would indicate it was "known in earlier consort song version", so it presumably was only known in the 5-voice version.
