This Courante comes from ms. RA-BAn Ms. 236.R-13769, Buenos Aires, Biblioteca nacional, fol. 110r. The composer is for the moment unknown. In the previous page there is a Courante by Pierre Gaultier, in the next
page a Sarabande by N. de Merville. Perhaps one of these is guilty of this strange piece? Especially the B part is quite crazy with its rhythm shifts. The instrument is 11-course baroque lute made by Lauri Niskanen 2011. Arto Wikla 27.5.2013.
