Simple Sarabande

The sarabande originated in the early 17th century and is a stately dance in triple time. It was popular in France and Spain but as a dance it quickly spread throughout the courts of Europe and the style was soon adopted into instrumental music in dance suites for solo instruments as well as orchestra. 

Something of this style has influenced Simple Sarabande; although its harmonic language is perhaps more up-to-date it could be seen as a ‘period piece’.
