Renaissance Solos for Mandolin

by John Holenko
sku: 02-98222
Most of this music is from editions or manuscripts from England in the late 1500s, with a few French pieces. There were two main kinds of instruments being played during the 16th & 17th centuries: the 4 course (four sets of doubled strings), and the 6 course cittern. These pieces were all written for the 4 course instrument and fall into three main categories: dance music, song arrangements and free pieces, which are basically preludes that explore the melodic range of the instrument. Beginning/intermediate. Note/tab. 64 pp.   More Details...
