Music for Lute and Bandora

Music for Lute and Bandora

Edited by Masakata Kanazawa

ISBN 9780674155008

Publication date: 12/01/1967

This is the first modern edition of the complete lute and bandora works of the sixteenth-century English composer, Anthony Holborne. Holborne’s lute music is equal in quality to that of his more famous contemporary, John Dowland, and he was one of the few Elizabethans to write works for the bandora. Each of the seventy-one pieces in this volume appears in two forms: the original tablature notation and a transcription into modern notation. The editor’s Introduction presents all that is known of Holborne’s life, and his notes give valuable information about the printed and manuscript sources of each piece.
