Branles No.1 is a minute long royalty free music instrumental that was probably originally played on the Lute or a Vilhuela. A gentle tempo and thoughtful or perhaps slightly pensive Branles No.1 really evokes images of Renaissance gatherings, perhaps a dinner, a ball or even a market scene.
One of a series of three pieces all entitled Branles no information is available about the composer of these three pieces and though the date is probably around 1600 AD not much more is known. Played on a classical guitar Branles No.1 is a authentic and elegant example of Branles genre of Renaissance dance music brought to you from White Beetle. Suitable for all kinds of media productions, including film production, Renaissance dramas and Renaissance history documentaries.
A Branle is a type of French Renaissance dance where the dancers, usually couples, either line up or create a circle and dance from side to side. The Italian verbs branler - to shake and brander - to brandish, perhaps go some way as to explain the origins of the Dance's name.
There are four types of French Branle; the Double, the Single, the Gay and the Burgundian. Not considered vastly different to the more famous Pavan Branle was not as as well known but managed to become popular throughout Europe even making it as far as Scotland, locally known as the Brail.
