The widespread dissemination of this piece is unsurprising for two reasons; firstly, Dowland travelled extensively as one of the most sought-after lute virtuosi of his age, holding various posts in Germany and Denmark lachrima, secondly, the vogue for English dance music spread rapidly throughout the German-speaking courts of Northern Europe during the later years of the sixteenth century.

Wonderful selection of other pieces as well. A principal aim of this work has been to identify the types of comparison and analysis that might in future be done by machine and to define the limits beyond which machine-analysis can, or should, not ventureand to provide some kind of benchmark against which such development might be assessed.
However, by the time Van den Hove added another setting to the Schele ddowland dated 16th Februaryhe had obviously experimented with other models, since the unorthodox AAiBCBiCi layout has been replaced with a more conventional AAiBBiCCi and the contrapuntal template differs somewhat. Although it is by no means a certainty, there is circumstantial evidence to suggest that a G minor setting preserved in a number of English manuscript sources may have originally emanated from Dowland himself.
A number of interesting European instrumental versions also survive from the mid-seventeenth century. Still pretty good though. Another instance of a Continental lute arrangement derived from the English G minor version can be found in Fuhrmannascribed to V[alentin] S[trobel].

If you click on ‘View Score Excerpt’ it comes up with a chunk of the score so you can compare. This study has only scratched the surface of a large topic and would be hugely enhanced by similar research into the multitude of similarly-transmitted English pieces that were popular across late-sixteenth and early-seventeenth century Europe.

Dowlane this research was carried out within the context of a computer-assisted electronic corpus-building project the analysis of the musical material has been carried out entirely manually.
