sku: 02-99995
The first complete anthology of lute music contained within Thomas Mace's historic treatise Musick's Monument (1676), transcribed and edited for classical guitar by Andrew Shepard-Smith. An intriguing collection of early English Baroque lute music containing twelve preludes, eight complete lute suites, transcription notes, and a detailed table of ornaments (as outlined in Musick's Monument). Originally written as a pedagogical text, Mace's lute music contains wonderful insights into the performance practice of the time. A valuable addition to both the performance repertoire and guitar reference literature. Moderate to advanced. Notation only. 63 pp.   More Details...
