These three dances are inspired by Renaissance forms, although they employ a harmonic and melodic language that blends allusions to Renaissance harmony with more contemporary elements.

A pavane is a slow, processional dance in duple meter; historically it was often accompanied by a tabor (drum) that emphasized the rhythm of the bass.

A tordion is a lively dance in triple meter that was often described as a more rapid galliard.

An allemande is a moderate tempo, duple meter dance of serious character that became an instrumental form often used in deeply expressive music, such as the tombeau.

00:00 I. Pavane
Pileata, Quintadena
02:11 II. Tordion
rh: Regalia
lh: Pileata, Amabilis
03:53 III. Allemande
Cithara, Pileata

Because of the lute stop, the Allemande is played with broken chords. As appendix a version without the lute stop, which enhances the nice harmonies:

05:55 III. Allemande
Pileata only
