Misc. Comments

This suite comprises the following pieces that can be played separately:

  • Fredo's chanson
Fredo is a young man of the court. However, no tournaments and battles for him: he hangs out with the musicians and dreams of playing with them, traveling from town to town.
  • Autumn's Allemande
Autumn is the daughter of a lady-in-waiting. She is too young to be let into the great hall when the grown-ups are dancing, but when she hears the music, she hides behind a curtain and does her steps in silence. The Allemande is an old dance form. It is described as to be danced "in a grave and ceremonious manner." The performer of this piece is instructed not to pay attention to this.
  • The Queen's Minuet
The old queen is obliged to dance with all the dignitaries that visit her husband, and she likes dancing, but some of them are so clumsy! Then she thinks back to when she was a girl, and her father danced her around the room, carrying her on his shoes.
  • Guarding the Cannon
The guards at the gate can barely hear the festivities from the castle. But it's no hardship staying on their post: they tell each other stories, and sometimes a kitchen wench comes to bring them food and ale, and perhaps a quick smooch.
  • The Royal Twins
The royal twins, Isabela and Alejandra, are inseparable. "Shall we dance my dear?" "But of course; left two three, right two three", "Wait, is that my left or your right?"
  • The Visitor from Afar
Who is that ornately robed stranger? Does anyone know where he is from? He looks a bit strange, but he's a very elegant dancer, don't you think?
  • The Cook's Estampie
Antone the cook shakes his spice cans to the rhythm of the music that vaguely comes through the kitchen walls. Pepper, shake, shake; salt; shake, shake; rosemary; shake; thyme, shake; pepper, shake,..... Wait. Did I already do that one? Estampie is an old dance form, where variations are played twice, once with the so-called open ending, and once with the closed ending. Some pieces in estampie form are very artful, such as the famous Gaetta from the London manuscript. Others, however betray a clear origin in improvisation: the subsequent variations are far from independent, but rather build on each other. This estampie is modeled after the latter kind.
  • Lola sings Lala
Lola the maid runs in and out of the banquet hall serving dishes. She sings along with the music, but she doesn't really know the tune so she makes up her own notes. The musical director looks at her disapprovingly, but no one else seems to mind.
  • The Last Pavane
The Last Pavane of the evening goes round and round. It is tradition that, at the end of a variation, the couple closest to the door is politely escorted out. Of course it wouldn't do to have that happen to the king and queen, so the musicians know to sneak in an extra variation when needed.
  • Piper on the Ramparts at Dawn
The party is long over and everyone has gone to bed. Just a lonely piper is sitting on the ramparts, greeting the dawn with his playing.
