        Four short pieces transcribed from a 1603 lute book. The sources are carefully identified and variations from the original described.
        I got mine in a sale so very good value, but still good at the normal price.
        The transcriptions could have been made more readable by making different choices of notation and by reducing clutter around demisemi- quavers.

        The description should have said that these transcriptions require the third string to be tuned to F#. A few original bass notes are omitted, but indicated in the score - it might be worth dropping the sixth string to D to get them back.

        As one should expect, other readings and transcriptions vary from this one. You need to make some changes before you can play along with Julian Bream (but I wouldn't assume he is more accurate).
