Here's some of what we know about Samuel Scheidt's 7 Variations on the French Song: Est-Ce Mars? (Franzosisches Lied: Est-ce Mars?): The song Est-Ce Mars? was one of the top hits of the 17th Century. In 1624 Scheidt published the first of three volumes of keyboard music, entitled Tabulatura Nova. This collection was a tribute to his teacher Sweelinck and he included a series of variations on the same song (Est ce Mars). Earlier, Sweelinck also made a set of 7 variations on this popular melody. This arrangement is very challenging. You will need a trombone player that can play rapid 16th notes (you might want to consider using a Euphonium).
