    What more can I say other than, "Thank you." Such a delightful piece of music and wonderfully orchestrated. Sophisticated simplicity at its best.

    Hi Fabio and Tom,

    Thank you for listening and commenting. You know by now that I have some kind of crush for these little amusing beauties. Here I have a collection consisting of at least 3000 such dances and airs, all collected in the Flemish archives. I've made some 150 arrangements so far (for my former chamber orchestra). That means a lot of work to come...

    I like it! I like it! (Did I forget to say "I like it?")

    That is really cool music and I enjoyed it very much. Thanks for posting it, Mister Max. I am on my third hearing.

    Best,

    Larry Alexander

    Thanks, Larry. I know you like that kind of music. The oboe da caccia makes it a little special, but for the rest it's a pretty classical arrangement. Haydn wouldn't agree, because I've turned some voicing upside down (e.g. first violin in the second voice...). But that's the kind of freedom we have now.

    Superb is the word! How fortunate for all that those replacing an undoubtedly discordant bass pipe thought to look inside the mighty tube before tossing it to oblivion! You did an astounding job arranging and sequencing this treasure! I have gleefully downloaded a copy for future enjoyment. May I know what sample library you used in this production?

    Thanks Sean for having taken the time to listen to this passepied.
    The libraries are all VSL, including 3 historic instruments: the oboe da caccia, the traverso flute and the baroque recorder.

    I've also posted a Mozart Gavotte during your temporary absence and a rather extensive suggestive work "Pierlala Again..." for symphonic orchestra. The latter is an own composition. Maybe you would want to learn more about these works too.

    Friendly,

    I, for one, will leave the historical speculations - and simply be very grateful that you found and have brought the beautiful little melodies back into the world. Hmm - maybe the pipe was out of tune or needed to be muffled. Probably not, I'll stick to enjoying your musical restoration.

(The finding place is true. Ghislain Potvlieghe found it during a restoration of the organ in the nineties. He was an organ builder.)

    Thanks for your kind words!
