Fairest Jewel of Atlantia

I wrote this song for Queen Adelhait near the end of my tenure as Royal Bard of Atlantia.  I first performed the song for Her at Atlantian Twelfth Night in 2016 (the day I stepped down as Royal Bard).  After the stories trickled in from Gulf Wars 2016 ("Gulfnado") I revised a phrase in the second verse to commemorate the event ("when storm winds blow, She is our shelter").  I wanted to continue my tradition of writing period-style guitar/vihuela pieces for Atlantian Queens, so just before the end of Christoph and Adelhait's reign, I used the melody from Fairest Jewel of Atlantia as the basis for my renaissance guitar piece, Queen Adelhait's Pavan. More information on Queen Adelhait's Pavan (including staff notation and tablature) can be found here.
