            Title: If Love Now Reigned
           Author: King Henry VIII "Tudor"  (1491 - 1547 / Renaissance)
   Transcribed by: Adam Guzowski (guitarra@poczta.fm)

Other corrections: (...are welcome)

1) Guitar tuning: (standard) EAGDBE - Old lute music sounds good with the Capo
                  on the 3rd or 4th fret.

2) General Info: I love lute music (and flamenco too :).This tune is the most
                 beatiful I'v ever heard. I'v heard this tune played by Lutz
                 Kirchhoff on a 24 string lute. And he blew my head off. I
                 I found 4 different compositions of king Henry on Internet,
                 but with lots of transcription errors. This one is rather
                 difficult, not for beginners, but if you love this music
                 like I do, forget about all warnings, just try and play it.
                 Don't forget to listen the MIDI file, it WILL help you.
                 Hmmm... what about expression, read the title... 100 times :)
                 Good luck.
