My Mission in Life

My new life mission is to bring as much Orlando Di Lasso music to life. At least this week.

Here are the five songs I have transcribed so far. It is hard to believe they were written over 400 years ago.

The music player at the bottom of every page has most of the songs I have made in the past 2 years. But enough about me.

Matona MIa Cara
Illumina Oculos Meos
Ardant Amour Souvent Me Fait Instance
Bonjour Et puis quelles nouvelles
Je l’aime bien et l’aimerai

Here is another take:

He’s Back

Here is the final cut of Orlando Di Lasso’s “Bonjour et Puis Quelles Nouvelles,” which as you know, means “Hello and Then What News!”

Eclectic Guitar

This song was written over 400 years ago. That’s almost as old as my laptop.

Tres Mas Otra Vez

This isn’t done yet, but I am (at least for today). It is another song by Orlando Di Lasso, titled “Bonjour et puis quelles nouvelles.” That translates to “Hello and then what news!” (I added the exclamation point for effect.)

And here are two more Bach Chorales:

Number 60
Number 61

Renaissance Fair

Today’s song was written by Orlando Di Lasso. He was considered among Europe‚Äôs greatest musicians at the end of the 16th-century. It is titled “je laime bien et laimerai,” which translates to “I’ll be Fine and I’ll be Fine” according to translate.com. Really!

Orlando Di Lasso (also spelled Orlando De Lassus) was born in present-day Belgium in 1532 but traveled extensively throughout Italy as a singer and a student of composition. He composed more than 2,000 works in Latin, French, and German and in all genres of vocal music. (It is disturbing how much he looks like one of my music teachers!)

More Renaissance Music

Here is another song by Orlando Di Lasso, titled “Matona Mia Cara.” I have seen different spellings of his last name; I am going with this one.

Electric Guitar
