Arranged for Guitar Ensemble

From: Consort Music from Pavans, Galliards, Almains and other short Aeirs London 1599
Arranged for Guitar Ensemble by Bradford Werner

Consort music is perfect for guitar ensemble arrangements and requires very little alteration or issues in range. This arrangement is basically the original but in treble clef and transposed to C. I didn’t think fingering was necessary, pretty straight forward. I will make more for purchase but this one is free.

Anthony [Antony] Holborne (c. 1545-1602) was a composer of English consort music during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. The Pavans, Galliards, Almains and other short Aeirs, both grave and light, in five parts, for Viols, Violins, or other Musical Wind Instruments was published in 1599 and consisted of 65 of his own compositions. It is the largest surviving collection of its kind. Most are of the pavan-galliard combination. Other pieces are of the allemande style. The rest are unclassified. – via Wiki
