First Arrangement from the Renaissance

Almande “La mon amy la” is a piece by Adrian Le Roy and is included in his 1551 book “Premier livre de tabulature de guiterre”. Here’s what the music looked like in his book and the modern arrangement in “The Renaissance Ukulele”.

You can hear a recording of this played on a Renaissance Guitar (a four course guitar) by searching on YouTube for “early music muse the history of the guitar in four and a half minutes”. It’s the first piece on the video but the rest of the video is fun to watch.
