Robert de Visee: Menuet en rondeau G_re_sol_majeur, ms. Saizenay, p. 291. The instrument is "Théorbe de pieces" in d (a'=392). This piece is marked "G major" in Saizenay ms. When played by my "théorbe de pieces" in d (a'=392Hz), it sounds like Bb major to ears tuned in the "modern" a'=440Hz; and it sounds in B major, if your ears happen to be in "baroque tuning" a'=415. My archlute (Stephen Barber, 1987) is stringed and tuned to a high theorbo. More French theorbo music in page cs.helsinki.fi/u/wikla/mus/Tiorba/deVisee/. Arto Wikla 28.5.2010
