"For some time now I have periodically made taranscriptions of early pieces mainly for my own enjoyment. My own interest in early music runs parrallel to my interest in Western folk music. It was intriguiding to consider the characteristics that are common in both. I discovered that even whole pieces, thought to exist only in manuscrip, occasionally cropped up remarkably intact in current folk playing, and instruments long assumed silent were found to be still sounding in remote areas of Europe. I began by taking a medieval dance tune and treating it as I would a jig or reel, or drawing on contrapuntal practice in marking arrangements of folk songs. In this video lesson I present five of these arrrangements that I hope you will enjoy." - John Renbourn
