Anonymous piece from Ms Dd.5.78.3 f. 39/2

Count Basie: I don't worry about virtuosity. I do what I like to do. If I'm a virtuoso, that's great. If not, I'm doing what I like to do.

Hello again,

I came across this one a long time ago, played on the guitar by René Bartoli. It sounds lovely on the lute, thank you for yet another wonderful recording!

Interestingly, Professor Bartoli attributes this to Dowland but it isn't in my Paul O'Dette recordings, at least not under that name. On another recording, René Bartoli again lists it as Dowland but plays a much extended version. I can't quite put my finger on it, but I'm sure I have heard the extension played separately and given another title—do we have an Elizabethan mystery on our hands?

Best wishes, V :D

Both versions, "the sick tune", and "Sick sick and very sick" are anonymous, not by Dowland (but some "marketing" intention sometimes makes players or transcribers attribute pieces to Dowland...)
The best is to check the "bible" for english sources :
