Bergerette
By Tielman Susato (1500-1561)
 
S A T B
 
 
Bergerette (Sans roch) from  Susato’s  “Dancerye,” published in 1551. This tune must certainly have existed as a popular song of the early or mid 16th Century, though I have no clue of its origin. It is simply a delight to play with its easy swings back and forth between feeling triple and duple. I don’t know another melody that is anything like this one.
