Pavane Sheet Music

The pavane (or pavana) is an European dance that can be traced to the 16th century in Europe. Evidence suggest that the music accompanying the first pavanes was of a moderate to fast tempo, but it was slowed down as it was adopted for solely artistic purposes. As a musical genre, pavanes are usually written in 2/4 or 2/2, in a ternary form, and using a homophonic accompaniment.
