“Kemp’s” Jig (1993)

This music is presented as a curiosity. The title suggests that Kemp may have written, certainly danced, to this tune. But the composer is unknown. It first appears in lute tablature in a collection gathered by John Dowland 1610-15 (Cambridge University Library, MS Dd, ii, II). 

Following is a transcription for a solo guitar by Anthony Rooley, published by the Oxford University Press, Music Department, 1969, under the title Four Elizabethan Dances.
