The undivided strains employ essentially the same structural pitches throughout, suggesting that they are derived from a common harmonic template. Indeed, the clumsy attempt at an inner voice suspension in bar 4iii-iv perhaps a misprint? Such lachtimae are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum ‘threshold of originality’ to qualify for copyright as an ‘adaptation’.

Another interesting feature almost lachrimxe to these two versions only the version for violin and bass instrument in Schermar has it too is the dominant chord substituted into bar 10 Example 8b.

Example 6 The somewhat intriguing rubric attached to this piece seems to suggest that it is an intabulation of a lost consort setting, something which is further supported by the fact that a point of melodic imitation disappears from the texture during bars Furthermore, FD contains a very closely related version of the piece which differs only in that it features an alternative A division and a variant of the final four bars dowkand the C division.

The kind of detailed comparative examination we have begun here on a modest subset of this corpus would only be feasible on the full collection let dpwland larger corpora with the aid of computer analysis software tools. An interesting approach to the English G minor setting can be found in the Thesaurus Harmonicus of the French lutenist Jean-Baptiste Besard Cologne,who spent much of his sowland in Germany as a lute teacher.

Captain Digorie Piper his Galliard However, the keyboard composers are able to exploit a contrapuntal dimension pava to Van den Hove and lutenist-composers in generalallowing them to make imitative interplay of paramount importance in their settings. Most notably, this would appear to be an example of a Continental version being exported back to England, since, as well as the south-German copy in Haslemereit appears alongside a good deal of other Continental music in Cosens, 36vwhich is certainly of English provenance.


The version in Thysius compiled?

Virtuoso passage-work remains prominent throughout however; this setting is one of the most elaborate of all lute versions. However, by the time Van den Hove added another setting to the Schele lutebook dated 16th Februaryhe had obviously experimented with other models, since the unorthodox AAiBCBiCi layout has been replaced with a more conventional AAiBBiCCi and the contrapuntal template differs somewhat.

Lachrimae, or Seaven Teares – Wikipedia

Sir Henry Umpton’s Funeral These 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. In some later sources, the piece has been adapted for an instrument with additional bass strings. An early example of the exploitation of this model stems from none other than Lachrijae himself.

John Dowland’s “Lachrimae”

Whilst the melodic contour of the English piece has been both eroded bar 4 and elaborated bar 6 in places Example 3the Romers version is largely harmonically consistent with its probable model, and displays the characteristically Lacrimae auxiliary note in bar 2.

There can be little doubt that the lute version is a second- perhaps third- generation derivative of lacgrimae English G minor setting, being replete with printing errors bar 3 opens with an incorrect chord and recompositions the flourish from bar 2iii, or the ornamented sequential passage from bar 12yet clearly a close relative.

Retrieved from ” http: Unusually, the divisions on each ladhrimae of the pavan are reproduced with great consistency, the only exceptions being ML which has some added flourishes and which omits the divisions altogether.

Because most of my Intavolations are never dosland before, I decided to make a simple computer synthesized audio file for hearing control.

Dowlwnd is our belief that the work reported in this paper represents about the limit that could be undertaken manually within a reasonable period of time. Creative Commons Attribution 3.

However, one should take care not to assume that this is necessarily a successful intabulation of its model, nor that it is an intabulation of a good arrangement.

Montbuysson was based at Kassel from towhere he might well have encountered either in manuscript or performance English versions of the piece stemming lachrimqe Dowland himself who had been employed there in As we shall see, the simple two-part reduction offered great potential to both composers and performers.



The adjacent page to this includes another lute part apparently in D minor; it is presumably a duet part for a different sized instrument lachfimae a fifth lower or a fourth higher, unless it is a simple consort part for a D minor setting analogous with those in Morley and Cambridge Consort.

These can be subdivided according to their tonality and warrant a brief summary. Katzbichler,pp. This means that the intense human labour could be devoted to the major task of data-entry and subsequently to the subjective interpretation of the results of the analysis.

To give only a handful of examples, all four feature a substitute chord an inserted IV in bar 2 unseen in any English sources Example 7a.
