Pavan by Daniel Bacheler (CUL Add.3056, f.80v.)

The three sources of this piece (the others are Herbert f.4v. and Dd.9.33 f.70v.) give very similar texts.  In Add.3056 it is followed by a galliard with the text “Ga: to the pavan before” but the galliard is in D major and elsewhere (Dd.5.78.3 f.58) it is associated with a different pavan in D major which seems a more likely pairing.  This pavan provides a classic example of Bacheler’s highly distinctive style of division writing.  There are no grace signs in the source, but I have played quite a few where they seem to be called for, often on dotted notes or to decorate unisons.
