Written in 1973-74 at the request of the Italian guitarist, Angelo Gilardino, to whom the music is also dedicated. This movement was omitted from the original publication of Mutations op.58 for Solo guitar. The original title was Prince Philip, His B***** Galliard, referring to the colourful language sometimes used by Prince Philip, husband of Queen Elizabeth II. The title refers to John Dowland's 'The King of Denmark's Galliard' and one of Prince Philip's titles, when he was born, was the Prince of Denmark.
