by Pierre Guédron (1563-1621)

The extensive series of airs published by Ballard between circa 1607-1640 (collectively, approximately 800 airs) includes many examples which clearly exhibit important interpretive information such as mensural changes in time and tempo, as well as many signs and symbols in the lute tablature that give specific information on how to perform the lute accompaniment. We have made an in-depth study of these performance indications and our interpretations are based on an empirical understanding of these sometimes obscure rubrics. Soupirs meslés d’amour is an example of a carefully crafted recit by Guédron with numerous performance indications in the music, including clearly marked changes in the tempo
