Scholars and lovers of Renaissance music will welcome this volume of music for the cittern, an instrument of the guitar family which used to be played by customers of English barbershops while they waited. One of the few extant sources for this instrument, Anthony Holborne’s Cittharn Schoole of 1597, is reproduced in this edition along with other cittern pieces by the same composer which are known today. Each of the pieces in the volume appears in the original tablature and in modern staff notation.
