Thanks Leeneia, glad you like it. I think Jack's right about La Rotta, though we will probably never know for certain, but there is another pairing in the collection: "La Manfredina" and "La Rotta" which have a similar characteristic of a lyrical tune followed by a lively one.

There is an excellent album featuring the tunes from the collection from Which Lamento di Tristano came from, called "Chominciamento di Gioia" by an Austrian Group called "Ensemble Unicorn". They have an excellent recorder player by the name of Michael Posch.

Here is a clip of them playing Chominciamento di Gioia

The original notation came from a manuscript in the British Library. I am not a scholar of medieval music and I found my copy of Lamento di Tristano in a book of medieval music for the recorder - in modern notation, of course.
