Classical Corner VIII

March 14, 2013 at 11:00 am Leave a comment

This delightful dance piece is from the collection “Varietie of Lute Lessons”, compiled in 1610. Sir John Smith, his Almain, a stately dance, was composed for the Lute by the great English composer John Dowland (1563 – 1626), also noted for his wonderful Lute-accompanied art songs.

This was performed with a capo on the 3rd fret and the third string tuned down 1/2 step.
