Furthermore, we are undoubtedly left with an incomplete picture of what was once in circulation. Unfortunately, such are the huge number of settings, derivatives and imitations it spawned that only a small sample can be fruitfully discussed here. It is not always clear whether the many variants contained in this print arise from typesetting errors or constitute genuine attempts lavan recomposition. The undivided strains employ essentially the same structural pitches throughout, suggesting that they are derived from a common harmonic template.
Such editions are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum ‘threshold of originality’ to qualify for copyright as an ‘adaptation’. Indeed, the clumsy attempt at an inner voice suspension in bar 4iii-iv perhaps a misprint?
The King of Denmark’s Galliard It is our belief that the work reported in this paper represents about the limit that could be undertaken manually within a reasonable period of time. Several clues suggest this dependancy upon the song, not least a handful of melodic details which mirror the syllabic patterns of the texted cantus part e. Editor Franz Julius Lzchrimae ? Virtuoso passage-work remains prominent throughout however; this setting is one of the most elaborate of all lute versions.
Both settings also exhibit a penchant for virtuosic writing in parallel thirds and sixths and, on occasions such as between bars even duplicate passagework more-or-less verbatim Example 8a. To single out just one instance, the highest pitch of the very first chord is carelessly omitted, thus ruining the famous descending tetrachord.
Although this research was carried out within the context of a computer-assisted electronic corpus-building project the analysis of the musical material has been carried out entirely manually. Besides the derivatives of the English G minor version that were in circulation on the Continent, there were a number of interesting lute settings with no apparent connection with surviving English sources.
Another interesting feature almost unique to these two versions only the version for violin and bass instrument in Schermar has it too is the dominant chord substituted into bar 10 Example 8b. The aim of this study, then, is to collate as much of this material as possible and present some preliminary hypotheses regarding in particular the transmission of this piece across mainland Europe. Furthermore, FD contains a very closely related version of the piece which differs only in that it features an alternative A division and a variant of the final four bars of the C division.
Mistress Nichols Almand It is interesting to note that there are no surviving Continental sources of the early English A minor lute setting. They may not be public domain elsewhere. There can be little doubt that the lute version is a second- perhaps third- generation derivative of the English G minor setting, being replete with printing errors bar 3 opens with an incorrect chord and recompositions the flourish from bar 2iii, or the ornamented sequential passage from bar 12yet clearly a close relative.
Retrieved from ” http: In some later sources, the piece has been adapted for an instrument with additional bass strings. Directions for Further Research This study has only scratched the surface of a large topic and would be hugely enhanced by similar research into the multitude of similarly-transmitted English pieces that were popular across late-sixteenth and early-seventeenth century Europe.
The problem of enforced registral displacement of the bass line between bars 13 and 14 of the G minor versions the low F is not available on a six-course lute is avoided in A minor settings Example 2although this key requires higher hand positions throughout and generally asks more difficult stretches of the player.
To give only a handful of examples, all four feature a substitute chord an inserted IV in bar 2 unseen in any English sources Example 7a. A similar situation can be observed in some later lute settings, such as Stobaeus possibly as late as the s? Scanned at dpi grayscale, improved, converted to monochrome. George Whitehead his Almand. Whilst the melodic contour of the English piece has been both eroded bar 4 and elaborated bar 6 in places Example 3the Romers version is largely harmonically consistent with its probable model, and displays the characteristically English auxiliary note in bar 2.
Schildt and Scheidemann also experimented with sesquialtera passages, something Van den Hove himself dabbled with briefly in the final division of Scheleand which is briefly foreshadowed towards the end of Dd. The version in Thysius compiled?

However, by the time Van den Hove added another setting to the Schele lutebook dated 16th Februaryhe had obviously experimented with other models, since the unorthodox AAiBCBiCi layout has been replaced with a more conventional AAiBBiCCi and the contrapuntal template differs somewhat. There are some odd substitute pafan in bar 9 and bar but these, in all likelihood, result from a scribe attempting to make corrections when copying from an exemplar in which some of the bass notes have been positioned on the wrong strings, rather than representing a genuine harmonic innovation Example 4.
CNRS,pp. This dowlnad that the intense human labour could be devoted to the lachrumae task of data-entry and subsequently to the subjective interpretation of the results of the analysis.
However, one should take care not to assume lachrikae this is necessarily a successful intabulation of its model, nor that it is an intabulation of a good arrangement. Even at this pachrimae stage, the melody of the English version is disappearing and the piece is beginning to be treated as a chord sequenceserving as a basis for further elaboration.
Dowland, of course, was in Nuremburg inso it is not beyond the realms of pzvan that this piece may have originated from him in some sense. A principal aim of this work has been to identify the types of comparison and analysis that might in future be done by machine and to define the limits beyond which machine-analysis can, or should, not ventureand to provide some kind of benchmark against which such development might be assessed.
Furthermore, close pavab of the undivided strains reveals a greater similarity between the two versions than initially meets the eye or ear, although the divisions are largely unique. Example 6 The somewhat intriguing rubric attached to this piece seems to suggest that it is an intabulation of a lost consort setting, something which is further supported by the fact that a point of melodic imitation disappears from the texture during bars Several perplexing unica serve to emphasise the incompleteness of the surviving picture, not least the fascinating F minor lute setting in Eyserttwhich, although tangential to the patterns of transmission identified in this paper, dowlxnd seems to be a good, error-free version.
