Program Notes

This delightful suite of two authentic Renaissance tunes, by the highly regarded English composer William Byrd, harkens to the days of knights in armor and ladies in waiting. Progressing from the stately Pavana: Earle of Salisbury to the lively The Carman's Whistle, this dignified setting is a fine addition to a band's library.
