It was through Tielman Susato’s dance tunes that many early musicians were introduced to the world of consort playing. Representing Renaissance dances such as the allemaingne, basse dance, pavane, and gaillarde, many of the melodies have become some of the most recognizable of the time period. We will look at each of the four parts (mostly ATTB) of a few of the tunes. Any edition of the complete Danserye will do, but we will be using the London Pro Music edition (LPM 101). Order from your favorite retailer or you can download it at www.earlymusicdirect.com. Intermediate players, should be able to play at least two sizes of recorders.
