Indeed, it is from the Camphuisen ms. (I have it here as a part of 'Monumenta Musica Neerlandica', which is a compilation of 17th century Dutch keyboard pieces).
Some people say that you will destroy the piece if it is arranged at a D02/D03 level. I disagree on this-in my opinion a relatively simple rhytmic 2voice texture without ornamentation could be very satisfying, just because the melody is so fluent and beautiful.
Another option is to arrange it for voice with accompanying guitar; the harmony is simple, and it might be rewarding for the instrumentalist to play the harmony plus a second voice.
I posted this request for arrangement because I thought people are always looking for new music and some might be interested in a pre-baroque piece that is not so well known.
