    Default William Byrd: Fantasy in D: Edward Parmentier-Musick as befitts a Quene

    I have spent some time this afternoon searching for the sheet music to the piece on this disc, but with no luck. Here is the disc http://www.cduniverse.com/search/xx/...Parmentier.htm (I highly recommend it for good renaissance keyboard listening). I was mostly searching IMSLP, I typed in piece as listed in the tracks, and looked in the liner notes of the disc(perhaps not thoroughly enough yet), but no luck. So I searched the Fitzwilliam download on imslp, William Byrd Fantasias, as I seem to recall it being in there. But I couldn't find it. Maybe its not labelled as a Fantasia in that book. Could be in another compilation.

    If anyone wants to help me, give the track a listen, and search through some volume of Byrd's works or renaissance keyboard music on imslp, or if you have a better idea... It is called "Fantasy in D" on the disc, but I don't see any such titles elsewhere. Fantasy, fantasia, whatever else it might be, and where to look...

    I just want the sheet music. Its a fantastic sounding piece and I want to work on it.

    If it's any help, this seems to be the Fantasy for keyboard in D minor, MB 46, possibly part of the Pavan & Galliard ("Sir William Petre"), for keyboard in G minor No. 2, MB 3. Not that familiar with Byrd's catalog...

    It could be from his compendium of masses "Gradualia". I checked IMSLP but they only have arrangements of a few sections, and not the fantasy as far as I can tell.

    You were right, that's the piece and it does seem to be right after Pavane and Galliard of Sir William Petre in My Ladye Nevells Booke. I don't know if they have much connection beyond that. Anyway I found the sheet music on an IMSLP score of My Ladye Nevells Booke, so I printed it! There is no telling when I'll start really working on it, but I have a sort of plan going on, so we'll see. Its the 41st one in the collection, called "A Fancie" in this version.

    It was thanks to this page that I found it: http://www.hyperion-records.co.uk/tw.asp?w=W7653
