Monumenta Musica Neerlandica
This piece is very closely related to a Branle, printed for 4-part instrumental ensemble in the seventh book of Estienne du Tetre (Attaignant, 1557. The Marggraf Caroli Dantz, with its Hupfauff printed in the B. Schmid tablature (1577), is also somewhat similar.
Susanne van Soldt was a 12-year-old daughter, of a wealthy merchant, a protestant refugee from the Netherlands, who lived in London. Hans van Soldt from Antwerp in 1577, probably after the plundering of Antwerp (1576). After 1605, they must have moved to Amsterdam, where he worked for the East Indian Company. The manuscript with the virginal music, however remained in London.. it once was owned by the same owner, who also owned the My Lady Nevell's Booke.
The first pieces are probably written in the Netherlands, while some English music is added in the London period, with remarks by hear keyboard teacher.
This book contains the only source for pre-Sweelinck Dutch keyboard music!

this is a redoing of a former video, this time with paintings by Jan Steen.
