Johnson: Galiarde to delighte (Wickhambrook)

Johnson: Galiarde to delighte (Wickhambrook)

The first part of the original (from the Lute Society website)

Here, as promised yesterday, is an arrangement of John Johnson’s Galiarde to delighte. Despite being a variation on the original, it is actually rather easier to play.

Unlike the Delighte, the Galiard is divided into 3 sections each of 8 bars, and each followed by a variation. The statement of §C is chordal, and if one filled in some of the harmonies one could strum most of it. How anachronistic that would be I could not say.

Available to download free in the following formats:

  • pdf
  • TablEdit
  • MIDI
This galliard is represented in several lute MSS. I noticed that Sarge Gerbode had published a version from the Welde MS, which differs slightly from the Wickhambrook version, and this will be my next post.
