In Honorem Ioanni Doulandi

Written in 1984 for the Canadian guitarist, Alan Rinehart, to whom the music is also dedicated. Rinehart was a lutenist as well and Duarte decided to combine his love for the lute and the music of John Dowland by writing a set of variations on Dowland's Melancholy Galliard. One or two other of Dowland's works are also quoted.  This composition was commissioned by Mrs Sylvia Ury.


Theme; I - Bramoso; II - Amabile; III - Con impeto; IV - Alla marcia, misurato e solenne; V - Alla gavotta, tempo giusto, senza espressione; VI - Come una Siciliana lontana, dolce e eterero; VII - Fantasia.
