Anon. - Packington's Pound - Lute Video

Another version of a famous one, the original lute version from Holmes Ms Nn 6.36 with two variations from the Fitzwilliam Virginal book (arranged by Nancy Carlin).

Hi Val,

Very nice! The original version is already a favourite of mine, but I hadn't come across those variations before, so it was a great pleasure to hear them. What a beautiful tone from your lute too! :casque:

Best wishes,
Geoff

So pretty, Val. I love the sound of your lute. Packington's Pound is one of the first songs I learned from my teacher. It has a special place in my heart.

Thank you for playing it so beautifully

Thanks all ;-) Yes Geoff, the variations are for harpsichord (Fitzwilliam Virginal book) but works fine on the lute too. Makes a nice add to the lute original.
