[PDF] Brahe, Per - Courante Pastorale from Per Brahe's lutebook 1620

Per Brahe was one of the richest of the swedish kingdom at the time. He was later governor general in Finland and founded Åbo university. His melody-book is dated 1620. This is a modified version for guitar from an already modified version for piano.

:merci: - I've never heard of Per Brahe before.
Is it known if he was a composer or is his lutebook a collection of pieces by others (probably unknown)?

I'm not expert but don't think Per Brahe composed himself. Here is a clip from https://www.academia.edu/13120820/Per_Brahes_hovkapell

"Per Brahe's headboard
Princes (Furstar) has always surrounded music, not primarily for aesthetic reasons, but to highlight power and glory. The people of the church provided for such a magnificent form of service as possible. In their education, music was as important as the study of Latin auctors and rhetoric. For noblemen who could behave at the court, music education was also important in addition to fencing, riding, dancing and book studies. As a result, young Per Brahe spent time playing under his university studies at universities in Giessen, Hessen, 1618-1620. A result thereof is the so-called Per Brahes lutbok which contains dancers as well as English and Dutch variations". (Google-translate)

The lute-book is stored in Skokloster Castle. http://emuseumplus.lsh.se/eMuseumPlus?s ... ew&lang=en

Roland Bengtsson, a classic guitar pioneer in Sweden, has made several arrangemants from the lute-book, which is closer to the original. Still copyright I think, unfortunately.

Dont forget to add drills and other from the time! :D

Thank you for this charming piece. Simple, straightforward, unpretentious: unlike its composer, I'll bet!
