Editorial Reviews

Book Description

To tune a lute or viol really well one must see to the exact spacing of the frets tied round the neck of the instrument. In this authoritative work Mark Lindley surveys different approaches to the problem as described from the 1520s to the 1740s by a variety of writers.

Excellent book. I would recommend it to anyone interested in viol, lute and Renaissance and baroque music. And also for music instrument makers (luthiers).
