A delicate and expressive piece written at the end of the Ars Nova (about 1420) in Burgundy
Suggestions for playing:
String 3 tuned to F sharp is slightly easier and smoother (it is playable in regular tuning too) ;capo on 2nd or 3rd fret gives a lighter sound
In order to make the piece more natural on guitar (while still aiming to play within the style of the period) some chords could be thickened and spread. A few notes could perhaps be missed out .
The timing is rather flexible - it is written here in 6/8 for convenience, but it seems to be simultaneously in 3's and 6's
Arrangement based on voice/lute version at medievallute.info
