Straloch

Straloch (c.1627 -1629) – The original ms is lost, but thanks to George Farquhar Graham, we have an 1839 copy. Robert Gordon of Straloch (1580 – 1661) was one of the principal cartographers of Scotland, contributing important maps to Blaeu’s Atlas. Highlights include five ‘Ports’, which seem to mix Scottish melodies with features of the old tuning preludes. 10 course lute, Renaissance tuning, and 7c. Modern edition by Lyre Music.

Here are the 7c pieces in the manuscript. Eventually the whole manuscript will be recorded.
