Giga

2008-08-01, tags: contradanse

No. 176 from 'Het beiaardboek' - De Gruyter - Antwerpen, 1746.

Although the title has a reference to 'jig', you cannot danse a jig on it since the B part has 14 measures instead of 16. The melody is assumed to be from Couperin. Again, the original is for violin and cello. I left the original cello part in, but I sauced it up with some harmony and chords, as any harpsichord player would do in that time period. I'm sure any decent piano or harpsichord player can make it better. Feel free.
