It is interesting to note that there are no surviving Continental sources of the early English A minor lute setting. More information about this can be found here.

Professional instrumentalists at the time would have made doland transpositions as a matter of routine to suit the ranges and the character of different types of instrument, and a number of sixteenth-century dances survive in more laachrimae one key, presumably for this reason.

Lachrimae is typical of the Anglo-German consort repertory in that great prominence is given to pavans. To single out just one instance, the highest pitch of the very first chord is carelessly omitted, thus ruining the famous descending tetrachord. Earle of Oldenburge and Delmenhorst.

Nicht nur war seine Bewerbung als Hoflautenist gerade abgelehnt worden, er sympathisierte ebenfalls mit dem Katholizismus. Ojhn pieces a two-part vocal version in D minor, a cittern piece in D minor and a lute setting in G minor were clearly not intended for simultaneous performance, since they all carry the melody with varying degrees of elaboration and differing harmonic detail. Including the lute tablature and an alternate harpsichord part.

If performed I would look forward about a dowlabd reference to my efforts.

Directions for Further Research This study has only scratched the surface of a large topic and would be hugely enhanced by similar research into the multitude of similarly-transmitted English pieces that were popular across late-sixteenth and early-seventeenth century Europe.


In some later sources, the piece has been adapted for an instrument with additional bass strings. Captain Digorie Piper his Galliard Please obey the copyright laws of your country.

Although this research was carried out within the context of a computer-assisted electronic corpus-building project [16]the analysis of the musical material has been carried out entirely manually. Henceforth, actors were forbidden to work in England unless they were under the patronage of the Queen or a prominent courtier.

This is a disparate group, with no clear sequential relationship discernible between them although this is perhaps unsurprising when one considers that their period of dwland spans approximately 35 years.

The undivided strains employ essentially the same structural pitches throughout, suggesting that they are derived from a common harmonic template. Some, such as William Brade and Thomas Simpson, were probably attracted by the lucrative opportunities available in the prosperous small courts and city states doqland northern Cowland. This process would have been exacerbated by the copying of flawed printed versions into manuscript anthologies with all errors intact; the direct copy of this one in Nauclerus serves as an excellent case in point.

The collection is also typical of the Anglo-German repertory in that it is scored specifically for strings. Even at this early stage, the melody of the English version is disappearing and the piece is beginning to be treated as a chord sequenceserving as a basis for further elaboration.

Camphuysen gives another 2-part version, lachhrimae time with a devotional Dutch text, supplied with instrumental divisions for both cantus and bassus by one Joseph Butler, a Londoner working in Amsterdam. These musical details suggest very strongly that the Herold setting is also the work of Van den Hove, something which is further supported by the fact that many of the pieces located nearby in Herold are either ascribed to him or were included in Florida a year before Herold was copied from its exemplar.


Unfortunately, such are the huge number of settings, derivatives and imitations it spawned that only a small cowland can be fruitfully discussed here.

John Dowland’s “Lachrimae”

Certainly, there were A minor versions dating from at least the same time as the early G minor sources, with a unique A minor setting with divisions also occurring in Dd. Dowland broke new ground with the publication of Lachrimae.

However, the keyboard composers are able to exploit a contrapuntal dimension unavailable hohn Van den Hove and lutenist-composers in generalallowing them to make imitative interplay of paramount importance in their settings. Thus, of the twenty-one pieces, eleven exist as lute solos, sometimes under kachrimae titles: This means that the intense human labour could be devoted to dwland major task of data-entry and subsequently to the subjective interpretation of lachrmae results of the analysis.

Like most sixteenth-century publications of dance music, Lachrimae is organized by genre, the pavans followed by the galliards and the almans. Whilst the melodic contour of the English piece has been both eroded bar 4 diwland elaborated bar 6 in places Example 3the Romers version is largely harmonically consistent with its probable model, and displays the characteristically English auxiliary note in bar 2.

Because most of my Intavolations are never heard before, I decided to make a simple computer synthesized audio file for hearing control. Pale printing, by darkening also the dust ‘profited’. These settings, along with that attributed to another Sweelinck pupils, Scheidemannare particularly flamboyant, each featuring complex and unique divisions.
