This Courante is by Denis or Ennemond ("Vieux") Gaultier. In the ms. "La Rhetorique des Dieux" it is called "Cleopatre Amante", in the ms. Milleran the name is "Courante de Gautier pour la Reyne de Suede", probably referring to the Swedish Queen Kristina (Christina). The version I play comes from the ms. ETGoessI. The instrument is 11-course baroque baroque lute made by Lauri Niskanen 2011. Arto Wikla 12.3.2013
