New tab book by Nina Zanetti!

Heart’s Ease is a collection of thirty-five tunes from the Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque Periods, arranged for Mountain Dulcimer. The selections cover a wide range of periods and styles of “early music”, including plainchant, madrigals, chorale preludes, troubadour songs, French chansons, and dance tunes. Some of the selections are traditional; others are by famous composers, such as Morley, Dowland, Purcell, and Bach; and the book concludes with eight tunes from Playford’s The English Dancing Master. The book also includes background information on the history of the tunes, lyrics, and tips for playing. Most of the arrangements are aimed for intermediate -level players, but a few tunes are presented with multiple versions, to accommodate different skill levels and styles. Tunes are mostly in DAD tuning, with a few in DGD or DAC. The collection includes some familiar favorites, such as “Greensleeves,” “In Dulci Jubilo", and "To Drive the Cold Winter Away”. Other selections may be unfamiliar, but provide a broad sampling of the diverse types of early music that can be enjoyed on mountain dulcimer.
