Galliarde, from Terpsichore (cello duo)
Title: Galliarde, from Terpsichore
Composer: Pierre Francisque Caroubel, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Two Cellos
Printout: 2 pages
Note: Caroubel was a major contributor to Terpsichore, despite that credit is generally given almost entirely to his collaborator, Praetorius. This lively galliarde has rhythmic twists that require one to remain alert, and like most of the dances in Terpsichore, it sounds excellent on cello.
