by Nicolas Vallet (1583-1642)

The Preludium in d is from a collection of psalm settings with variations for solo lute by Nicolas Vallet (Regia Pietas, Amsterdam, 1620). Vallet, a Protestant expatriate from France, also published a collection of psalms for lute and voice (Een en twintich Psalmen Davids, Amsterdam, 1615), from which we perform Psalm 137, Estans assis aux rives aquatiques. The psalm tune appears in long note values and was originally intended to be sung by the lutenist while playing the elaborate filigree of polyphonic decoration.
