anhess,

Thanks for sharing. I'm not much familiar with Dowland, though I suppose I should be given the volume of work he composed. This sounds ahead of it's time, given the period; I wonder if that is indicative of Dowland. At anyrate, your Frog Galliard was very nicely done and I enjoyed it so much!

Thanks again, Joe

Nicely played :) This was quite a popular tune in Dowland's time (being the tune to a song 'Now O Now, I Needs Must Part', and there are several versions of it. Here is a different version (though I don't know where this one comes from): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPdMwoBki-A

Hello anhess, :bravo:
I always enjoy listening John Dowland's music.
I could just imagine seeing the people at the ball, dressed in their finest clothes, dancing very formally to your playing.
Thank you for sharing you talent and wonderful ability to play for us. I loved hearing you play.
