Example text

Three ornament signs are found in the piece: a small t to indicate a main note trill (S panish: trino); a curved line above a note (â•… ), as in bar 5, to indicate an ascending appoggiatura (Spanish: apoyamento); and a sharp or pound sign to denote a strong, fast vibrato (Spanish: temblor). The series of dots below notes or chords found in several bars are S anz’s original left-hand fingerings. The pairs of parallel lines found in bars 16 and 32 simply indicate the end of one section and the beginning of the next.

A s one contemporary writer described the F rench version as serious and dignified, I would suggest playing Carré’s Allemande at a tempo of about 44 = quarter note, but feeling it in two half note beats. The sarabande (S panish: zarabanda) was a dance that may have originated in Mexico. Evidently Carré’s version was known by S anz, who transcribed it into Italian tablature and included it in his 1674 book (book I, plate 12, Zarabanda francesa). L ike the allemande, the sarabande too was slowed down by the F rench.

This motion involves sounding three quick distinct notes as one unit. A nd finally, there’s the appoggiatura, called an esmorsata, apoyamento, or ligadura in S panish sources, and a cheute in F rench. There are two types: the descending appoggiatura, which is played on the beat starting on a note above the main (written) note, and then quickly pulling off it to the main one; and the ascending appoggiatura, which is played by starting on a note below the main one, then hammering on to the main one.
