"Die Katzenpfote" (Cats Paw) is a little three part piece from the Glogauer Liederbuch (1480), that
is realy difficult to play for it's
highly complicated rhythm. Try it Yourself. A lot of musicians
became crasy about it. Here is the midi-file.
If You want to hear it played by a tenor-recorder, alto-krummhorn and tenor-dulcian, click here:
