Ruud and I play Milan's Pavana VI

Ruud van den Berg and I have now recorded this gorgeous Renaissance dance arranged for two guitars by Nathaniel Gunod. Ruud plays the Guitar 1 line, while I play the Guitar 2 part. I filmed the birdies pavana in Provence.

First steps with my Renaissance lute

Here is my first attempt at playing my new Renaissance lute. In this very preliminary recording, I play Roman Turovsky's Cantio Sarmatica CXII. It is fun to feel like a beginner again. There is a lot of room for improvement!

The Turtle Dove played with my classical guitar

Now that my nails are back in their proper shape, I can use my classical guitar again to play this little gem of the English traditional repertoire. I shot the backdrop picture in Huy, Belgium.

Cantio Sarmatica CXII

I am pleased to post my live recording of this delightful piece composed in Renaissance style by Roman Turosvky. I also play this piece on the lute, but...not yet ready to record :-)
