In this book and on the enclosed CD you will find the music of Santino Garsi da Parma, Julio Cesare Barbetta, Diomedes, Bartlomiej Pekiel, Simone Molinaro, pieces from The Chilesotti Collection and many more. These are pieces that I heard first when I was learning the guitar. I didnt have a lute or the music to these wonderful selections. I admit that I lusted after them, but it was years until I finally got a lute and then finally tracked them down. Many of these pieces were relatively difficult to find, but to be sure, all of them are gems. Here is a book which you can use at a performance or just play for your pleasure. This is a great collection of pieces for any lutenist.
Note: These are pieces which have been used in "The Guitarist's Lute Book" so if you that book, this would be duplicate music for you.
The CD that comes with the book has all of the lute pieces in the book performed by Allan Alexander on a on the Renaissance lute made by Jacob Van Lennep. The CD is in the same order that the pieces appear in the book.
