According Rob MacKillop (see his pages) two famous minuets from the Anna Magdalena Bach Book (1725), that once were thought to be by Johann Sebastian Bach, actually belong to a suite in the Berlin Mus.ms.30500, with the attribution, "Suite de Clavecin par C. Pezold".
Rob published a nice arrangement for dm-baroque lute, see Rob's Free Scores. And then I just for fun made an arrangement of his arrangement to a lute tuned in fourths - in the so called "renaissance tuning". ;-)
You can get the pdf file of my version of the two Menuets here: Menuet1_2.pdf (16 Kb).
An 8-course lute is enough, perhaps even a 7-course lute, if you feel natural in fingering the bass courses. Playing the piece by a 10-course lute or by an archlute is perhaps easier. I have written the tabulature so that the 7th string is fingered to get the f sharp. If you do not like that, then tune the 7th to f sharp -- the f natural in bass is not needed in this piece.
