Johnson: Galliard to delight (Welde) As promised yesterday, a version of Galliard to delight from the Weld(e) MS.
Arranged from a version on Sarge Gerbode’s website, attributed to “IRL-Dtc:Trinity College Library, Dublin John Welde Lute Book (1605), f.4. Encoded by Jason Kortis; edited by Sarge Gerbode”. I cannot find the Welde MS in Dublin as it is, apparently, in the private collection of Lord Forrester in Shropshire. (Dublin does have the Dallis MS, but that does not contain this piece.) In any case, I am very grateful to M Gerbode for his excellent site.
The Lute Society has published a facsimile of the Welde MS, which I may treat myself to one day.
This version is pretty similar to yesterday’s: some of the divisions are different, and the home chord (D on the ukulele) is voiced with F# rather than D on the top.
Why not try them out and see which you prefer.
