[PDF] Gaultier, Ennemond - Tombeau de Mezangeau

Post by pogmoor » Fri Feb 08, 2013 3:42 pm

Here's a piece that's had a couple of mentions recently, by kefka as the first lute tombeau, viewtopic.php?f=1&t=73952 and by Praeludium as a great example of the French baroque, viewtopic.php?f=1&t=75212&p=818964.

It's not too difficult to make a passable guitar arrangement. I've had to change the key, thin out and/or revoice a few chords and I've put short phrases in bars 9 and 17 up an octave in order to aid playability, but otherwise it is as it appears in the tablature. The fingering needs a bit of care, especially in the second half.

Edit: I've found a better tablature source and uploaded an 'improved' version.

Thanks Eric,

This is a tough one to sight read but looking forward to working it out.

I thought I recognized the name from Davison Apel Anthology but not the same Gaultier. I wonder if there is some relation.

Thanks again, Arthur.

Ah the Historical Anthology of Music - that brings back memories! I remember looking through that in my school library and copying out the lute pieces to try on my guitar. I managed to find a second-hand copy of both volumes about 15 years ago; it's certainly a source worth having.

The Gaultier piece there (Mode sous-ionien) is from La Rhetorique des Dieux by Denis Gaultier who was Ennemond's younger cousin. Ennemond is sometimes referred to as Gaultier le vieux to distinguish him from his cousin and I think it has sometimes been difficult for scholars to untangle who wrote what because of the way in which names were rather incompletely cited in manuscripts and some printed sources.

There was another lutenist with a similar name - Jacques Gautier who worked at the English court in the early 17th century. Seemingly he left France for England in 1617, having been accused of murder! His music is sometimes confused with the other Gaultiers'.

Excellent! I just heard this on a Marten Falk album and searching for a guitar transcription brought me here. Thank you for this :)
