[PDF] Dowland, John - Praeludium 98

Post by pogmoor » Thu Aug 03, 2006 1:34 pm

I posted this piece as a jpeg in 'Search of sheet music' at the beginning of July and later had a moderators request to post it here instead as a pdf. It is no. 98 in the Diana Poulton collection of Dowland and is the same Praeludium that is played so nicely on the lute by zorolowsli in the 'Our Early Music MP3s' thread.

(The following post is the same piece in A minor; both versions will appear on my website in due course - this can be accessed by the www link at the foot of this post.)

John Dowland Praeludium 98 (Version in A minor)

Post by pogmoor » Thu Aug 03, 2006 1:37 pm

Here is the same piece in A minor. It is more difficult in this key (still quite playable, though) but the arrangement brings it closer to the pitch it sounds on the lute.

Thanks for posting these pogmoor. In another discussion someone commented on the shortage of free Dowland scores, so I think these will help fill the void. :merci:

OK :) If anyone's interested there's a version of Dowland's 'Fortune' on my website.

I don' quite understand what tempo is assume for this piece.In early music we often can see notation liker quarter note=80 or some indication( like Largo.Andante etc.) And can long 32th passages be played via legato technique? For me I prefer E minor version In Largo tempo maybe Adagio but not faster because you must clearly articulate 32th notes.

That's fine. The original is found notated in lute tablature in a manuscript; this does not carry any information about tempo or dynamics, so in many ways your guess is as good as mine! In fact 16th century lutenists playing the piece may well have taken the same approach as you have - choosing a tempo that allowed them to play the 32nd note confortably :)

Does anybody play the E minor version of this with 3=G? I'm assuming that most use the Renaissance 3=f#.

I've done this (as best I can) with 3rd at G, but now wondering if I should relearn it with the F# tuning. There's one particular place where a melody note has to get cut short because of the G tuning. I can picture it, but don't know which number bar it's on.
