Rob McKillop posted an MP3 of this pavan a few days ago (played on a gut strung guitar in lute tuning) viewtopic.php?f=72&t=46159#p496536
. I was so moved by his playing that I dug out an arrangement of the piece I'd started a couple of years ago and had another look at it. First time round I wasn't sure it would work on a modern guitar in normal tuning, but hearing how Rob interprets the piece led me to think perhaps it would, and so here's my attempt. I hope to follow it with an MP3 once I've got the piece sounding a bit better, but I don't think I can get it to Rob's standard
The arrangement is based on the version in The Collected Lute Music of John Dowland
(Poulton). I've included some fingering suggestions where I didn't think it was straightforward. I play it with most of the top string E's open, which is not always the case in the lute original. Fingering in the 2nd half of bar 21 needs some thought and may depend on whether or not you have large hands (or play with a capo)
You can also find the piece (and some other Dowland) on my website.
