Prelude No. 65

Composer: Alfonso Ferrabosco (ca 1575 – 1628)

Alfonso Ferrabosco the younger (c. 1575 – March 1628) was an English composer and viol player of Italian descent. He straddles the line between the Renaissance and Baroque eras.

The guitar arrangement by Robert Callaghan is selected as one of RCM (The Royal Conservatory of Music) grade 7 Renaissance Repertoire.

Note for RCM Grade 7 Examinations, Prelude No. 65 and Coranto No. 30 (search for my another video - https://youtu.be/mprgV086N-o) are to be played as one selection.

Interesting to hear this, as far as I know there are no known 16th century lute transcriptions.

 I just think it needs to be a little bit more fluid, and a little bit more sense of fantasy. Have a listen to what the viol players make of these preludes, for example Jonathan Dunford in his recording of John Merro's anthology, and, at another extreme,  Romina Lischka in her Ferrabosco II CD.

Thanks for advice, yup will find more viol - bringing that fluid into guitar edition makes sense
