Songs by John Dowland on the Ocarina
This book is a collection of songs written by John Dowland. These simple but intensely emotional songs are ideal for beginner and intermediate ocarina players. All songs are written in standard music notation. A demonstration CD with accompaniment tracks is also included. This book can be used with a 12-hole or a multi-chamber ocarina.
The book includes the following songs:
1. Then Sit Thee Down
2. Flow My Tears
3. Come, Heavy Sleep
4. If My Complaints Could Passions Move
5. Daphne Was Not So Chaste
6. Time Stands Still
7. Farewell, Unkind Farewell
8. Clear or Cloudy
9. Fine Knacks for Ladies
10. Dear, If You Change
11. Time's Eldest Son, Old Age
12. Go Crystal Tears
13. When Others Sing Venite
14. Come Again
15. Can She Excuse My Wrongs
The style of music is not what I would normally play, so that was a small barrier to get past, but once I did this has been a lot of fun. Finding sheet music specifically for the ocarina has been kind of challenging.
I used to read music in high school, but until January of 2020 it had been almost 15 years. This book helped a lot because it offered several different keys, rhythms, and time signatures to work with.
Lastly, I chuckled at some of the song names. Namely "Daphne Was Not So Chaste" and "Then Sit Thee Down". John Dowland may have been the original OG.
Great buy if you are on the fence.
