"Bouree" from Praetorius' Terpsichore (unfinished)

Get Flash to see this player.

Hey folks, it's time for an update!!
Here is my crazy take on this insanely AWESOME (to me) dance by Michael Praetorius. I've got a few recordings of it by different groups and I just can't get enough. So I decided to do my own...

The fact being that I'm not competent enough to perform all the parts at a pleasing tempo, I have used some software synthesizers to tastefully render the bass line and several other parts. Not all parts are synths, however (as you'll hear.) The soprano line of the first part was played on my Susato Renaissance recorder and another part (improvised) was played on my Aulos tenor. Then, in the second part, my Susato Kelhorn assists a synthesized viola da gamba in playing the bass line.

This piece uses what is probably my most diverse instrumentation yet - from recorder to rock drums to toy piano, it's all in here!

Sounds excellent, so far...
so hurry up and finish it! Amazing to think this was written, what, 400 years ago? Interesting mix of instruments and fitting, somehow, for a synth to play Praetorius. Come on, get busy ;-)
