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.
