A selection of beginner to advanced bransles from the Renaissance (16th century) adapted for the Ukulele or Renaissance Guitar, using musical notation and tablature.

Ancient music written for the modern ukulele ….. None!

Playing ancient music on the ukulele ….. Absolutely!

This collection of beginner to advanced bransles from the Renaissance (16th century) are adapted and arranged for the Ukulele or Renaissance Guitar, using both modern musical notation and tablature. The pieces in this book are ordered by composer and in roughly the same order as the original books. When playing a soprano, concert or tenor ukulele, linear tuning is required (i.e. using a low G string). Notes about the composers are at the back of this book.
