Another piece taken from Arbeau's 'Orchesography' of 1589. This is the only song to appear in the book and the first page of music includes the title, 'Pavan in Four Parts with the Drum Rhythm'. We have included the drum pattern in this performance though in our version we play it at half the speed suggested by Arbeau. The protagonist of the song speaks of his ardent love for his 'Angel' in this incredibly sensuous text.
