Hello

I want to learn renaissance music. William Byrd being my all time favorite seems a bit hard to start with.
Is this collection from "Imslp" a good place to start?
http://imslp.org/wiki/10_Pieces_for_the_Virginals_or_Organ_(Anonymous)
I'm also green at the "Characters" or "Music signs" or what they are called in English in this type of music.
Like when it is a trill and so on. Is there any place I can read about this?
And this being played on the piano. Is there anything I should think of when playing this type of music?
If there is any tips in how playing this kind of music and in what I should start of with please tell me!

Wow, you are one of the rare ones that want to learn Renaissance keyboard music.
The easiest and quickest way to go about it is to explore edited collections of early music. Some examples:
1. Fitzwilliam Virginal Book, you can find that on imslp. Published by Dover. Contains some pieces by Byrd and many others.
2. Anthology of Baroque Keyboard Music, published by Alfred. Has some early keyboard music as well. Has suggested ornament realization.
3. Collection of pieces of individual composers, like Pachelbel (Dover), Froberger (Peters ?, I forgot), etc.
4. To learn more about ornamentation:
i. check out some books, such as Companion to Medieval and Renaissance Music, edited Knighton (great book for you); Performers Guide to Music of the Baroque Period, ABRSM; Ornamentation in Baroque and post-Baroque by Newmann; Grove Dictionary of Music.
ii. articles on-line. Do some search.
iii. recordings, preferably harpsichord playing. I generally find harpsichordists are more "authentic" in their realization since they study early music more than pianists. Listen to how the ornaments are executed.

Have fun!
