This is Renaissance music to listen to over and over again. I find myself humming the tunes for days. The arrangements and original compositions are rhythmic and pulsating. I hope Mr. Alexander continues to compose and play for a long time.

I had this cd on my wish list for a long time, watching the price fluctuate between 20 and 100 dollars, as the cd goes out of stock quickly from Amazon, and brutal individual sellers can charge whatever they want for it. Finally I bought it for twenty dollars, thinking I wouldn't see it go down much.

Now, I'm a guitar player, and I love melodic music for solo nylon string guitar, especially with a European folk feel, so this was right up my alley. However, shortly after buying this cd, I was looking for the sheet music online, and found a book of all of these songs written out in tab and sheet music, from the artist, WITH A CD INCLUDED. The price of this book was twenty dollars. To put this in other words, I spent twenty bucks on this cd, when I could have spent the same amount on the book of sheet music with the same cd included. I ended up buying the sheet music/cd package from another site for $19.51, so now I have two cds of the same thing, plus one book of sheet music.

The music itself is great, and if you love classical guitar or European folk music in general you'll probably really dig this cd. Highlights are Kemp's Gigue (/jig), which is probably the catchiest thing you'll ever hear, Canaries, Dance of the Washerwoman (which is actually an inaccurate translation of its original title, "Welscher Tanz", and the charming and simple renditions of Greensleeves. A lute version of Dance of the Washerwoman is included toward the end of the cd.

If you're a musician, don't buy this, buy the book with the cd included, just google it and you'll find it. Amazon should have it but it's hard to find. Search "Allan Alexander" under books. If you choose to get this version, you're effectively forfeiting your right to the sheet music, in trade for a plastic case.

Since I've loaded this on my iPod I continually come back to this one. It's great background music while I work.
