Tinternell The title derives, perhaps, from the Italian tentalora or tientalora, from tienti alora, a dialect form of tienti all'ombra ('keep yourself in the shade').
Tinternell Although the tune of 'Turkelony' does not fit the dance called 'Tinternell' as it should, according to the theory stated above, a cittern setting of a tune called 'Tinternell' matches not only the dance of the same name but is also more suitable for the choreography of 'Turkelony', a feature due to its very accommodating form: for if a double bar line is inserted after the third beat in bar four, the result is a piece in two sections each consisting of four bars beginning on the upbeat.
