Renaissance Dance Tune

This is a fast tempo, rollicking dance tune from the Renaissance that uses recorder, lute, dulcimer, violin (viol), hand drums, and tambourine.

It is in a minor key, but very happy and uptempo. It's in 6/8 time, and could easily be used as an instrumental sea chantey. The original song that it is taken from is about the prophet Jonah from the Bible, although there are no vocals in this arrangement.
