Medieval & Renaissance Songbook (Sheet Music)


Over the years of playing this lovely music on the lanes and stages of various Renaissance and Medieval festivals I’ve often been asked where I get my music; what are my sources? I finally decided to compile this collection of forty of my favorite period songs and make them more easily accessible.

This collection is presented in a folk-friendly manner from the perspective of performers and music lovers of all skill levels to provide many hours of personal and shared enjoyment. All songs are in lead line format with guitar chords included. Song lyrics, where available, are also included.

This Medieval & Renaissance Songbook is offered in three different editions: a printed edition in a lay flat binding, a download edition with lots of extras, and a Musescore .MSCZ edition specifically aimed at performers and arrangers.  Read more on each edition just below in Description.

Songbook Editions

Download Edition:

This edition bundles a set of extras that just cannot be offered in a print edition.  If you’re not sure, I’d recommend this edition.  The download PDF booklet can be moved to mobile devices allowing access to the sheet music wherever you are.  The PDF Booklet scores are individually printable.  You also get a “loose” PDF copy of all the scores, ready to import into PDF based digital music readers.  I use Piascore on my iPad.
