SORRY<sigh> I pushed SEND too soon.
The "Pastyme with good Companye" tune is all over the place. Often
ascribed to Henry VIII, it is more likely to be of continental origins.
Probably a chanson rustique. Charlotte traced it for one of her
seminars, but her professor (famed as reputed inspiration for "Lydia
with Diamonds in the Sky") did not return her paper<Grrrr>. She found
many more starting with the list of Pastyme pieces in John M. Ward's
"The Lute Music of Royal Appendix 58," **Journal of the American
Musicological Society** 13 (1960): 117-125. With facsimile of Roy App
58 as Plate 4 and transcriptions as Examples 7 and 9 (PhalÃÂ¨se, 1547),
Ward's list of about 15 sources is on pages 123-4.
Among those I remember from Charlotte's paper is a hymn harmonized by
Bach (I can't recall the title), and in a Canadian Jesuit hymnal a
chorale in the Huron native American language<!!>.
I can add another from Barberiis's **Opera intitolata Contina,** sig.
Ee3v: "Pas de mon bon compagni." Many know it as "De mon triste" which
Francesco intabulated and used in a parody fantasia. But many miss
Perino Fioretino's parody of Francesco's fantasia super De mon triste,
# App. 32 in the HUP edition. The work by Perino (Francesco's famous
student) departs from the fantasia, NOT from the intabulation! A full
sounding of the tune appears cantus-firmus-like in the top line.

Subject: [LUTE] Pastyme
Does anybody have the lute version of "Pastyme with good companie" that
Paul O'Dette plays on the Royal Lewters CD. I am encoding it into
fronimo from RA 58 but not getting it quite right. The Phalese version
(De mon triste [Richafort]) is also faulty.
In Adrian le Roy's "Sixiesme livre de luth 1559" there is a piece by
Debussy. Did he have a time machine?
