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 exquisite and 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 for lute and theorbo, Mace's lute music contains wonderful insights into the performance practice of the time. A very valuable addition both the performance repertoire and to the guitar reference literature. Staff notation; moderate to advanced.
