Passamezzo Edition newly transcribed by Tamsin Lewis
This selection of pieces is taken from various sources. Many are transcriptions of lute songs either from Campion’s masques and songbooks or from other manuscripts. Also included are some dances and three four-part psalm settings from English psalters. All pieces have been especially selected to allow the top part to be played on a tenor viol, if a treble viol is unavailable. The compass of part 4 goes down to C.
