On September nine, 1513, the vicious contention among the younger Henry VIII of britain and his charismatic brother-in-law, James IV of Scotland, led to violence at Flodden box within the north of britain. It was once the inevitable climax to years of mounting own and political stress by which James bravely asserted Scotland’s independence and Henry demanded its obedience.
In deadly competition, George Goodwin, the best-selling writer of deadly colors, captures the colourful Renaissance attractiveness of the royal courts of britain and Scotland, with their unparalleled wealth, innovation, and inventive expression.

Alternatively, a low voice with good agility could perform both versions at the original pitch. An important consideration, too, is the quality of the transposition for the accompanying instruments. The tessitura of the piece should also help to determine the key: no instrumentalist wants to play an entire piece at either extreme of the instrument’s range, and the piece would sound odd that way (unless one was seeking a special effect, such as low strings in a mournful piece). Another concern when transposing a piece of music by one octave for another voice range is inversion—a problem when any of the lines go lower than the bass.
