With all due apologies to the composer et al: "Gentles, do not reprehend - if you pardon, we will mend". This is the best I can do for today.

Very, very nice and tuneful. I wish I could play half as well as you do.

Please share more of your other pieces.

Nice jump, ivanho! Congratulations on making the jump to post your first MP3! :D

Your ornaments bring life to this piece, and remind us that this music is as alive today as the day it was written!

Once modern, always modern. That's my view of all art. You have confirmed it.

Thanks for your contribution! More :mp3svp:

Hi Ivanho,

A favourite piece of mine, and I really enjoyed the way you played it. As others have commented, your ornamentation makes it even more lively. Well done!

:bravo:

Thanks, everyone - glad you enjoyed it.

Being self-taught from the school of Noad, I used to follow his lead about keeping ornamentation to a minimum with renaissance music, and it seems to me that most guitar players do likewise. But as I've gotten back into guitar-playing over the last year or so, I've noticed via YouTube that most of the lute players' performances are rife with "shakes" and "relishes" - and I really like them. The ones here are highly influenced by (alright, mostly lifted from) a Paul O'Dette recording of the same piece on YouTube.

Interesting that you mention Paul O'dette. By coincidence lately I've been listening to an old cassette recording of a live concert he played years ago with the countertenor Daniel Taylor, mostly Dowland's music. I don't think this one is on it, but there was Lady Hunsdon's Puff, among others.

I'm also thinking I may have been more influenced by Noad then I realize. Having spent a lot of time myself learning from his book, I haven't really thought about adding ornamentation, and often pick and choose which ones I do play when they are written in. Perhaps it comes down to personal taste, when and what to play, and only comes with experience. You've done a good job with it ivanho. Thanks again!

:bravo: Nice playing Ivanho.

I'm learming an interpretation by Kevin Gallagher at the moment. This interpretation is nice too.

Nicely played, oh and Paul O Dette is a pretty good person to 'lift' from.

Great ornamenting! I'd already thought of a few of them when playing myself but you've given me some more ideas. :D

Interesting, all the comments about the ornamentation. In addition to being the first time "performing" for an audience other than immediate family, this is the first piece where I've really made an effort to ornament. It was fun, but probably something of an anomaly. I'd like to post another renaissance piece soon that is more restrained in that regard.

And a special "cheers" to those replying from the UK. We recently had a nice young man from Hull (visiting soccer coach) staying with us for a week, as a result of which my youngest daughter has become a partisan of the Hull City Tigers - when we can find them on cable.
