The pieces contained in this book form a selection of Music from the 16th Century to the present day. The anonymous Corranto and Robert Johnson’s Almans are taken from the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book. The pieces by John Dowland and Henry Lawes were originally written for the lute – the latter being a lute song.
Benjamin Rogers’ jigg and the pieces from no.6 to no.14 are all arrangements of English harpsichord music. The Lesson by Sterndale Bennett and the Sarabande by Theodore Dodds were transcribed from piano scores and the last piece was written specifically for two guitars. Left hand fingering has been kept to a minimum. Two complete scores are provided enabling players to exchange parts.
