Example text

O riginally the allemande was a rather vigorous dance in G ermany, England, and Italy; however, in the F rance of Carré’s time—the age of L ully—it was slowed down and became the introductory piece in a suite. A s one contemporary writer described the F rench version as serious and dignified, I would suggest playing Carré’s Allemande at a tempo of about 44 = quarter note, but feeling it in two half note beats. The sarabande (S panish: zarabanda) was a dance that may have originated in Mexico. Evidently Carré’s version was known by S anz, who transcribed it into Italian tablature and included it in his 1674 book (book I, plate 12, Zarabanda francesa).

Corbetta’s Chiacona (Italian, usually ciaccona or ciacona; S panish, chacona) is quite different in character from the slightly later F rench chaconne, and exceedingly different from J. S . Bach’s eighteenth-century chaconne. The ciaccona began life in the late sixteenth century, possibly in Mexico, as a lively, suggestive dance-song, traditionally accompanied by guitar and castanets. It soon was taken up by the Italians and, from 1606 through the late seventeenth century, one or more ciacconi could be found in every alfabeto guitar book, published or manuscript.
