Hi Stumelia! Yes, the almaine is a dance originally from Germany, I believe, though it was popular throughout the Renaissance and Baroque periods and I don't know enough to guess where this particular one might have originated.

Thanks for taking the time to have a listen, and to comment. I am glad you enjoyed it.  :)

Very lovely, and nimbly played!  This tune makes me think it was a dance tune. Any idea what country this tune came from?

That's wonderful, Brian.  What a happy tune.  And a big, well balanced tone on that dulcimer.
