Cheers,

Thanks for the vid! However, I'd really appreciate it if anyone could share some scores, or let me know where they might be available at a reasonable cost, because I'm not really good at transcribing by ear, I'm afraid.

Cheers,
M.W.

Just cruise through this:

http://imslp.org/wiki/My_Ladye_Nevells_Booke_of_Virginal_Music_(Byrd,_William)

It's 1591, so gunpowder had already made its presence on the battlefield. There isn't much in the way of keyboard music available from the early middle age.... Mostly what we have is from the 15th and 16th centuries. Perhaps someone who is more of an expert in early music (I'm just an accomplished dabbler myself) can chime in here.

Cheers for that link, already made the most of it  Wink I've also got the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book. Indeed, there's a lot more Renaissance music for keyboard than medieval it seems; still, an expert in early music chiming in here and lending a hand would certainly be more than welcome.

This is a good website:
earlymusick.weebly.com
You can transpose lute music into keyboard format, or keep it that way (one of Liszt's etudes has that, not saying I can play it though!) Lute music can be found in many places!

Well, it's not piano solo, but it the piano/keyboard part played by itself sounds great!

In the Fitzwilliam Virginal Books, there are some arrangements of late Medieval songs, such as Wolseys Wilde, The Hunt's Up, and La Volta. Thonoit Arbeau transcribed many dances from the late medieval and early and midde renaissance pieces. Also, see the book Medieval Celebrations.It has melodies, but also a few pieces arranged for piano. Also, harp transcriptions of medieval tunes can be played on a piano!

Pieces like Greensleeves have many piano transcriptions, ranging from obvious to obvious.

Respighi also arranged many medieval, renaissance, and baroque pieces, calling them "ANCIENT". Shocked They are in the romantic style.Gabriel-Marie's Golden Wedding is claimed to be based on an "ancient air (air ancienne)".

I did not know that! The wonderful thing about being a musician is the fact that you learn something new every day!

Lately I've been working very hard on Respighi's Four-Hands version of The Pines of Rome!

And even an arr. of 'Scarborough Fair' (which I'd been looking for for some time already) is there, too! Cool Quite the find for me, that site, khantallis!  Wink

Does anyone know a recording of the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book ? I would be very interested to hear this.

I don't know any on CD, but there are great ones online! Have you searched on amazon? My favorite is "Byrd's" LaVolta(actually an Italian dance, also known as Saltarello by Galileo's father).
But for those who have limited abilities (such as me [Richard Morris is the talented one]), there is now a book of medieval music transcribed for the beginner-eelementary level!

Thanks so much for that, rahbbie, nice find, indeed! And the recordings included in the article are also much appreciated. Wink Unfortunately, the earlymusicianweebly site has been down for some time now, so this von Bingen chant is quite a sight for sore eyes...or is it 'ears'?

It's also nice to meet someone else who appreciates Gregorian chants! Have you perhaps heard Karl Jenkins' one from his "The armed man"? This is one of my favorite recordings of it:
