Reverberations

This was inspired by a performance on the archlute by David Tayler, of  the Prelude from the Cello Suite, BMV 1008 , by J.S. Bach.

Although this does not contain much (if any) of the notes from BMV 1008, it aspires to evoke something of the same feeling.

The Mariona is a Spanish dance of the time.

The “B” in the title does not actually refer to the key of B major or minor, as might be supposed. Each book of baroque guitar tablature had a page which assigned  a letter from A to Z to various chord positions. Here, the B actually is a C major chord shape.
