Sample text

O riginally the allemande was a rather vigorous dance in G ermany, England, and Italy; however, in the F rance of Carré’s time—the age of L ully—it was slowed down and became the introductory piece in a suite. A s one contemporary writer described the F rench version as serious and dignified, I would suggest playing Carré’s Allemande at a tempo of about 44 = quarter note, but feeling it in two half note beats. The sarabande (S panish: zarabanda) was a dance that may have originated in Mexico. Evidently Carré’s version was known by S anz, who transcribed it into Italian tablature and included it in his 1674 book (book I, plate 12, Zarabanda francesa).

1 presents the chart of alfabeto chords with a transcription beneath showing the actual voicing of each chord when played on a guitar strung without basses (stringing A ). “Inversionless” chord voicing cannot be achieved on any other plucked instrument of the period, nor, of course, on the bass-rich modern guitar. Indeed, combined with the techniques for strumming the chords described in chapter 4, this idiom was one of the chief defining features of the baroque instrument. 1 23 T h e Basic s Campa n e l a s The use of harp- or bell-like effects in scale passages is another important guitar idiom.

The pieces are presented first in tablature. This version is intended for reading, performance, and historical reference, as it contains all of the original performance indications, spellings, and so on. A transcription in staff notation (one-line treble clef sounding an octave lower) follows. This is not a guitar transcription. A s noted in part 1, except for the pieces that are suitable for a guitar using stringing C, the staff notation transcriptions in the anthology cannot be played on a classical guitar without seriously distorting the music.
