Coventry Carol by Anonymousby Anonymous (English 16th century)

There was a great flowering of sacred and instrumental music, including music for the lute. The lute was brought to Europe in the 13th century by the returning crusaders. It was originally played with a plectrum, usually a feather tip. Later the plectrum was discarded in favor of plucking with the right hand fingers, thereby creating more polyphonic capabilities. Of all the instruments of the Renaissance, the lute was without a doubt the most popular. The amount of music printed and hand-written for the lute is astounding.
