Saltarello De Phalese

Heard this on "Songs and Dances of the Flemish Renaissance", a seemingly obscure album that I’ve only been able to find on Youtube. I transcribed it by ear. Pretty simple tune but there’s something so endearingly catchy about it! The simplicity of tunes back then was charming.

The tune is simply called "Saltarello" and was composed by Pierre Phalese, a Flemish man alive between 1510-1575, so the tune was obviously composed sometime in his lifetime, as an adult. I called it Saltarello de Phalese as there are already a number of Saltarellos on the database and I thought I’d give credit to the composer of this tune.
