We don't really have a spot here for Renaissance music, but close enough! 

A Galliard was a Renaissance dance/music in Europe.  According to Wikipedia, it was a very athletic dance and it's music was quite popular well after the dance wasn't. 

The Galliard

Violin, Viola and Cello can all play this music.

 Here's a sheet music video to this beautiful "Galliard No.24"- by Anthony Holborne. 

Holborne | Galliard n. 24 [Hesperion XXI; Jordi Savall]

Here's a modern "Galliard" by Ritchie Blackmore (Deep Purple) & his group, Blackmore's Night.  ...there's violin in here!

I quite like Howard Goodall, but, like a moronic teenager, he attributes the lute's modern revival to Sting. Julian Bream played the lute a lot from the 60s onwards.

More Critter Music!

Found usable sheet music for John Dowland's, "The Frog Galliard / P.23a" (Cadearly). 

It's kind of a free-for-all, whether you play Violin, Viola, or Cello - cause it's all on one staff. (lol)

LOVE the "Michael Praetorius: Gaillarde for 5 part Instrumental Ensemble (285)" from his Terpsichore collection - performed and directed by Philip Pickett (Lost Note). 

Praetorius Gaillarde

Andy Cope and Laura describe their Bass Viol and Theorbo, then play "The Fairie Round" (not my spelling) Galliard by Anthony Holborne. 

The Fairie Round Galliard

Here's doable video sheet music for Holborne's "Fairie-round", by Terry Martin.

Anyone try any of these, yet? 

I've been playing a little of Richie Blackmore's. 😏
