Pavan (Bacheler/Lane)

Clive Lane

This 5-part Pavan originated from a piece for two bass viols by Daniel Bacheler.

Daniel Bacheler, also variously spelt Bachiler, Batchiler or Batchelar, (baptized 16 March 1572 – buried 29 January 1619) was an English lutenist and composer. Of all the English lutenist-composers, he is now credited as probably being the most successful in his own lifetime (Wikipedia).

I loved the melody and developed it for 5 viols by adding three parts and decorating the melody.

Score and parts, including an alto clef version of treble 2 and a bass clef version of tenor 2.
