Program Notes

Adapted from a work found in Morley's Fitzwilliam Virginal Book, a famous collection of Renaissance keyboard music, this elegant arrangement is the perfect way to introduce Renaissance music to young musicians. It provides an excellent programming contrast, and the lively dance has wonderful technical, musical, and stylistic elements throughout.

- Program Note adapted from publisher

An "alman," more commonly called an "allemande," is a Renaissance and Baroque dance, and one of the most common instrumental dance styles in Baroque music, with examples by Couperin, Purcell, Bach and Handel. It is often the first movement of a Baroque suite of dances, paired with a subsequent courante, though it is sometimes preceded by an introduction or prelude.
