Editorial Reviews

Review

" ... a valuable book. It is an important link between the unknown of the Renaissance and the present." The Triangle of Mu Phi Epsilon "Straightforward practicality is the most outstanding characteristic of this book." Continuo "... a fine and very welcome book that is likely to remain the high standard of lute continuo instruction for some time to come." Sixteenth Century Journal

I bought this book as an introduction to continuo on the lute. Unfortunately for me I am very much a novice player and most of the book is beyond my grasp. I do find some of the information helpful, and I hope that by continuing to play I will better understand the material in a few months, or years.

Glad to see this book back in print, or at least in recent print. The edition I borrowed from the library years ago was hard to come by for less than $75 on the OP market. I found that it helped to have a a bit of music theory and experience with figured bass to make sense of it--none of which I had back then (except what I learned from the streets). Also gives a thorough run-down of all the different continuo lute types and the types of music they were likely to accompany. Nigel North is a great guy and a regular at LSA "Lute Camps".

This is probably the best resource for learning continuo on the lute family. Be prepared for a lot of hard work, though. Continuo is not learned in a few weeks.

Like student of Continuo I find this book such a great help to start study on this subject. There are so many manuscripts and facsimiles avaible, but This method works like a good collection and synthesis of many ideas.
The shipped and delivery works excellent too.
