Day 28

This piece is from the Craus Lute Book housed and looked after by the Austrian National Music Collection (ms 18688). Although we don't know who composed it, we expect the book to have been collated from about 1540.

I find this piece to be very beautiful -- there's something about the Eb vs. G-major 3rd relation that seems softer than the way 3rd relations started to be used in the classical period.

If you're enjoying the January Lute Challenge, why not share this piece?
