David Kellner (1670–1748) was a German composer of the baroque period and a contemporary of Bach. He wrote a sizeable amount of compositions for the lute but also theory of music and equal temperament. His diagram of the circle of fifths is the earliest extant examples. This Passepied is charming intermediate work but has a few whacky fingerings – nothing too difficult but some passages are out of the ordinary. I’ve made a notation edition as well as a notation plus TAB version. I based my arrangement on the original lute tablature (see the PDF).
