Far from perfect performance, but today is the most perfect day to play an astronomic baroque piece: asteroid and meteors! This is a Chaconne by Jacques Gallot in D-Lem ms. II.6.14, f. 52v-54r (Leipzig, Städtische Bibliotheken, Musikbibliothek). The piece is really very modern to be composed in the 17th century! Perhaps the piece tells about the C/1680 V1, also called the Great Comet of 1680, Kirch's Comet, and Newton's Comet? See the Wikipedia article in en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Comet_of_1680. The instrument is 11-course baroque baroque lute made by Lauri Niskanen 2011. Arto Wikla 15.2.2013
