This is a great pick. Wonderful clarity in the playing and the sound quality is nice despite how old this is. I think I like this composer better than Mudarra even.

There are three solo things on Qobuz from Marincola: Morlaye, Holborne and Capirola - he makes all three sound like they wrote top class music.

Does anyone have Paul Odette's recording of Guillaume Morlaye, called Tablatures de Leut?  If so, I'd appreciate it if they'd upload it for me, it's very hard to get at a reasonable price.

There are some fine pieces by Morlaye in this CD of Charles-Edouard Fantin ( Societè Francaise de Luth )

 A big +1 here.  Still hoping for more volumes in this collection.

Whatever happened to Robert Barto's longterm recordings of Weiss' Lute Sonatas? The last volume (#11) was released in 2012 and there has been no new recordings since then.  His Weiss albums have been a revelation and opened up some fantastic music for me. They have been a staple in my home ever since the first volume more than ten years ago. Is he still recording?

I've greatly enjoyed this recording  by Luciano Contini (previously on Symphonia):

His touch (or do lutenists say pluck?) is so sweet, that combined with the serious manner, and a way of avoiding any sentimentality, makes the Holborne part of this pretty special. I've not so far managed to get into the Robinson.

Q

 I started to listen to this recording today when I say your post, and once again I was impressed by Christopher Wilson's sweet touch, and his modest, natural, unintrusive way with the music. The only other Johnson I've heard is from Yavor Genov, on an interesting Brilliant release. Genov is more dramatic than Wilson, and he plays the silences more.

this is a sensitive performance by Cherici. I’m a little surprised by how good the work of Francesco Canova is. It’s very mournful and moving music. I’m confused about the justification for some of da Milano on vihuela though I love how it sounds. Actually, the lute on this has quite a “guitarish” timber. All in all, this is a good find.

I started listening to this CD .
Transcriptions of vocal music for lute duo .
Spinacino's pieces are instead intended for lute duo.
Registered sound of good quality, not over-inflated.
I like it very much !

Listening to Axel Wolf's new Michelangelo Galilei recital right now. It is delightful, intricate music, as one would expect from someone whose brother was Galileo. The music takes lots of little twists and turns. There is an awful lot of performance noise, squeaks, finger sounds, etc., so potential buyers should be aware of that caveat.

Thanks. I’m enjoying this. I have to say I’ve also been enjoying all the output of Christopher Wilson I could get my hands on.
This, for example:

This guy named Pascal Monteilhet , after a series of remarkable (IMO) discs ,  retired from the scenes and established himself in a tropical island , Philippines or so.  A desert island ?  I don't think  :D     
His Bach suites performed on the theorbo made me happy some time ago, and his De Visee as well.
Didn't know this CD with music by Gallot ,  wonderful music performed in a evocative way, and very well recorded.

I have this I think, on a CD with some music my Dufault, it’s really dreamy. Have you heard Hopkinson Smith’s Gallot CD? To me, he makes Gallot sound like Denis Gaultier!

Do you like music for voices? If so, you may enjoy the CD called The Castle of Fair Welcome from Gothic Voices, which features Christopher Wilson. I love it!

I have a hard time with choral music or music focused around voices. On the other hand, I love the Rumsey recordings. I wonder if there’s anything else like Rumsey. I have, of course, seen available recordings of voice w/vihuela and lute. I’m not sure what I’d like. I prefer simplicity. Any hint of opera training turns me off and I need the sound of a pluck continuo.
