Pastorel by David Kellner (PDF & Lesson)

Pastorel in A Major by David Kellner (1670–1748) – Sheet Music for Classical Guitar (originally for lute). Notation Edition & Notes + TAB Edition. Arranged by Bradford Werner. YouTube Video Link. This piece nicely placed in a set with Kellner’s Rondeau, Passipied, and Giga.

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 Pastorel is charming intermediate work that sits on the guitar very well. 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).
