About this music..
In all my travels over the years, I have performed these songs around the world in many kinds of circumstances. I must also confess that I don’t believe I have ever played any one of them exactly the same way twice. Some have been recorded more than once, and similarly they never come out the same. I attribute this in part to my love for the Renaissance period and its music, where the court musicians would use a given melody as a framework for improvisation. What has survived the centuries are those melodies upon which they improvised. I love to imagine those early musicians all in a circle.. like my friends and I. We pass around the instruments and chord changes before the fireplace, sharing stories of our travels, and taking turns with melodies and solos.
This book may be used literally and played note for note as written, but I encourage you to create your own interpretations and improvisations within the songs as I do.
I hope this book gives you and your loved ones as much musical pleasure as I have had creating it.
The CD that accompanies this book is drawn from many of the CDs I have recorded.
It is meant as a demonstration of tempo and feel and will not match up note for note to the written pages in this book. You can also hear samples of these songs on one of the many download services offering them.
