MOUTON: Works from the First and Second Book / Hopkinson Smith
Mouton, who died in 1699, is a very touching composer. Melancholic, with beautiful motifs, almost romantic.
NARVAEZ: Works for voice and for the vilhuela / Marta Almajano, Juan Carlos Rivera
The vilhuela is not the lute, but this CD is the best to discover this instrument. The songs, in special "Paseavase el rey moro", have an extreme beauty.
Another great composer for the vilhuela was MUDARRA. There is a good CD played by the inevitable Hopkinson Smith.
