Product description

A Comprehensive Guide for Performers.

Continuo Playing on the Lute, Archlute and Theorbo is both historical treatise and practical guide. It will be an indispensable companion for lute players of all abilities - even those with no prior knowledge of harmony - and invaluable too for anyone with an interest, practical or scholarly, in matters of historical performance practice.

In this extraordinarily broad survey, Nigel North discusses the history of the lute, the archlute, and the theorbo and gives practical advice on technique, the choice of instrument for particular music, and the preparation of scores. With Black & White illustrations.

Focuses on 17th & early 18th century music for these instruments with many musical examples.

CONDITION: Slight discolouration of DJ spine/ front/back with minor corner wear and previous owners address sticker marking (removed) on inside of the front board but otherwise a clean and unmarked copy with bright, clear pages. (See photos for details)
