Virtuoso passage-work remains prominent throughout however; this setting is one of the most elaborate of all lute versions.
These can be subdivided according to their tonality and warrant a brief summary. There are perhaps two main reasons for this, the most obvious of which is the size of its print-run; one thousand copies was immense for this period and the publishers presumably expected to sell every copy.
The widespread dissemination of this piece is unsurprising for two reasons; firstly, Dowland travelled extensively as one of the most sought-after lute virtuosi of his age, holding various posts in Germany and Denmark and, secondly, the vogue for English dance music spread rapidly throughout the German-speaking courts of Northern Europe during the later years of the sixteenth century.
The version in Thysius compiled? This is a disparate group, with no clear sequential relationship discernible between them although this is perhaps unsurprising when one considers that their period of compilation spans approximately 35 years.

Although this research was carried out within the context of a computer-assisted electronic corpus-building project the analysis of the musical material has been carried out entirely manually. Pale printing, by darkening also the dust ‘profited’. The aim of this study, then, is to collate as much of this material as possible and present some preliminary hypotheses regarding in particular the transmission of this piece across mainland Europe.
Both settings also exhibit a penchant for virtuosic writing in parallel thirds and sixths and, on occasions such as between bars even duplicate passagework more-or-less verbatim Example 8a. Camphuysen gives another 2-part version, this time with a devotional Dutch text, supplied with instrumental divisions for both cantus and bassus by one Joseph Butler, a Londoner working in Amsterdam.
Example 6 The somewhat intriguing rubric attached to this piece seems to suggest that it is an intabulation of a lost consort setting, something which is further supported by the fact that a point of melodic imitation disappears from the texture during bars A number of interesting European instrumental versions also survive from the mid-seventeenth century.
Lachrimae, or Seven Tears (Dowland, John)
The G minor version, however, fared slightly better, being both directly copied although, curiously, without the divisions so lxchrimae in England and used as the basis for further recomposition.
Semper Dowland semper dolens 9. Furthermore, close examination of the undivided strains reveals a greater similarity between the two versions than initially meets the eye or ear, although the divisions are largely unique.
It is not always clear whether the dowlanc variants contained in this print arise from typesetting errors or constitute genuine attempts at recomposition.
John Dowland’s “Lachrimae”
If performed I would look forward about a small reference to my efforts. Mistress Nichols Almand Including the lute tablature and an alternate harpsichord part. Composer Time Period Dowlahd. To give only a handful of examples, all four feature a substitute chord an inserted IV in bar 2 unseen in any English sources Example 7a.
The problem of enforced registral displacement of the bass line between bars 13 and 14 of the G minor versions the low F is not available on a six-course lute is avoided in A minor settings Example 2although this key requires higher hand positions throughout and generally asks more difficult stretches of the player.
To single out just one instance, the highest pitch of the very first chord is carelessly omitted, thus ruining the famous descending ladhrimae. Several clues suggest this dependancy upon the song, not least a handful of melodic details which mirror the syllabic patterns of the texted cantus part e. Katzbichler,pp.
Some notable Continental lute arrangements Besides the derivatives of the English G minor version that were in circulation on the Continent, there were a dowlwnd of interesting lute settings with no apparent connection with surviving English sources.
Montbuysson was based at Kassel from towhere he might well have encountered either in manuscript or performance English versions of the piece stemming from Dowland himself who had been employed there in Several perplexing unica serve to emphasise the incompleteness of the surviving picture, not least the fascinating F minor lute setting in Eyserttwhich, although tangential to the patterns of transmission identified in this paper, nevertheless seems to be a good, error-free version.
A keyboard setting by Schildt survives in three sources, one of which Clausholm – possibly autograph? George Whitehead his Almand First Pub lication. However, the keyboard composers are able to exploit a contrapuntal dimension unavailable to Van den Hove and lutenist-composers in generalallowing them to make imitative interplay of paramount importance in their settings. Indeed, the clumsy attempt at an inner voice suspension in bar 4iii-iv perhaps a misprint?
There are some exterior indications that there may be a connection between these two versions, since both are in G minor, are coupled with lacchrimae versions, and use the unusual formal scheme AAiBCBiCi. John Langton’s Pavan The undivided strains employ essentially the same structural pitches throughout, suggesting that they are derived from a common harmonic template.
Dowland, of course, was in Nuremburg inso it is not beyond the realms of possibility that this piece may have originated from him in some sense. Captain Digorie Piper his Galliard Nicholas Gryffith his Galliard Intavolation in french Lute-tabulatur for 2 lutes Unisono.
