The Nightingale, the organ of delight

Composer: Weelkes, Thomas



Number of parts: 3

Ayres or Phantastiicke Spirites for three voices

This is a good example of a piece which is much easier to play if you leave the barlines out. The bar lines make it look like there are wierd rhythms you have to count, but without the bars, there are only notes on and off the beat. If you listen to the MIDI file, you will hear that the rhythm is actually quite square and conventional, except that any given voice is playing only part of it. It's much the hardest piece to play in the London Pro Musica modern edition with score, but if you play from facsimile or from my abc edition, it's no harder than anything else with a few eight note rests.
