From The Art Of Musick, Edinburgh circa 1570

Although not strictly for lute, this treatise on musical composition contains many two-part pieces which fit the 7c Renaissance lute perfectly, and give a good insight into Scottish art music of the period. With an emphasis on melody and rhythm, these pieces are harmonically simple, yet quite engaging.
