Even more important to note, there is a *different* thing in Arbeau
called the Maltese Bransle which is *hard* to play on recorder (which
was the point of this discussion).  The tune most people know as the
Maltese Bransle is (deep breath) "Sciarazula Marazula"(sp?), and it is
indeed easy to play.  The Maltese Bransle in Arbeau is a bear on the
soprano, a particularly challenging piece to set a beginner on.  Be
not confused.
