Musician's or Publisher's Notes
While the instrumentation of the of this period is mostly unspecified, brass
playing was widespread during the Renaissance and these pieces work quite well
as arranged for brass quintet. This delightful collection of Elizabethan
dance music was edited and arranged by American Brass Quintet trumpeter Raymond
Mase. Almayne is stately in character, followed by a brisk dance
entitled Widow's Myte. The Dovehouse Pavane is slow and reflective.
Next is a pair of fairly fast madrigals: Why Are You Ladies Staying?
segued into Hark! I Hear Some Dancing. The Allemande is a
dance in moderate 4/4 time divided into two sections beginning with a short
upbeat. The swift last movement is entitled Volta,
the name of an old dance which includes a characteristic jump. CINCO
