About This Song
“Pavanne” was written in 1990 by Stevan Pasero and was released on the album Seasons. The song is a waltz in 3/4 time and is composed in the key of F major. Traditionally, the pavane (pavan, pavanne, padovana) is a slow processional dance common in Europe during the 16th century (Renaissance). The pavane, the earliest-known music for which was published in Venice by Ottaviano Petrucci, is a sedate and dignified couple dance, similar to the 15th-century basse danse. The music which accompanied it appears originally to have been fast or moderately fast but, like many other dances, became slower over time.
