N otice that on F oscarini’s chart only the fingered notes of the chord are notated. It is assumed that the remaining courses are open and will be sounded in the chord. â•‡ Carlo Calvi, “alfabeto falso” 22 7 Id io m s U n iq u e to t h e B a r o q u e G u ita r “I n v e r s i o n l e s s ” C h o r d s W hen chords are sounded on a guitar that is strung without basses, no strongly audible inversions are produced; the chords are heard as units of pure block harmony. Since the clarity and transparency of the chords allowed the words of solo songs to be easily heard and understood, this feature made the baroque guitar an ideal instrument for the accompaniment of “the new music” (Italian monody), and many of the early monody composers included alfabeto tablature, with or without a bass line for another instrument, in their collections.
Evidently Carré’s version was known by S anz, who transcribed it into Italian tablature and included it in his 1674 book (book I, plate 12, Zarabanda francesa). L ike the allemande, the sarabande too was slowed down by the F rench. . ” That sounds like a pretty tall order, but whether or not one is fully able to capture the mood, I suggest playing the piece at a tempo of about 76 = quarter note. Carré uses only one ornament sign in the Allemande and Sarabande—an ×. He doesn’t specify which ornament the sign represents, but based on musical context and comparing his use of it with that of F rancesco Corbetta, who also published a guitar book in Paris in 1671, it seems to be an upper note trill, which Corbetta called a tremblement.
There is no record of Corbetta’s ever having held a post at the R egent’s court in the N etherlands, so perhaps the dedication was made in the hopes of securing one. The Prelud[io] al 5to tuono (in the fifth mode; that is, the L ydian mode in R enaissance music theory, transposed by Corbetta to C) is a delicate, free-style, introductory piece. A s it would go against the character of a prelude to perform it with a steady beat throughout, the player is encouraged to speed up or slow down certain passages.
