Estampie (the dance, not the group)

Browsing randomly through YouTube brought me to this video, a performance of an Estampie by the Renaissance Players in Sydney, Australia.

 

Silly costumes notwithstanding, this tune got stuck in my head, and gave me the idea of writing an Estampie of my own as the third movement of the Viola Concerto. I’m suddenly awash in ideas for it, and I think I’m going to be working on it for a while. Possibly I’ll even try to finish it first, before returning to the first movement.
