Selections from Thoinot Arbeau's Orchésographie arranged for ukulele
Orchésographie, one of the most significant sources on sixteenth-century French social dance, is a rich collection of enjoyable melodies. This book contains twenty-one tunes, all transcribed into modern notation and arranged for ukulele solos and ensembles.
The solo arrangements are mostly suited for both re-entrant (high G) and linear (low G) tunings, and the ensemble arrangements are for re-entrant soprano ukulele, low-G tenor ukulele, baritone ukulele and classical guitar. They include adaptations of harmony arrangements by Peter Warlock and Charles Wood. All of the music is kept simple, to be accessible to as many players as possible.
