Three Pieces for the Edward Light Harp-Lute

"I only had it for a few days, Stuart, and can't remember now what pitch it was at. Yes, every now and then I heard guittar music. Same relative tuning, of course."

Three Pieces for the Edward Light Harp-Lute

"Very pretty and the instrument does sound harp-like. Is it tuned in Eb but written in C? The last piece reminds me a bit of Oswald's bell piece in his 'Pereyra Da Costa' publication"

Rob MacKillop replied to Adalbert Arbuscula's discussion vihuela - how to start?
"As much of the music is polyphonic, I suggest learning Fuenllana's 2-part music. By trying to articulate two voices, you will learn a lot about what makes this music tick. And they are wonderful pieces."

Hi Rob,

Thanks for your note. I'm glad to hear the harp lute is getting some more playing, it was in bits when it came to me and I wasn't sure until it was all glued up if it would be a viable playing instrument - it certainly surprised us all when it was done. With Rosemary Hodgson's help we got a good stringing for it and it has been going strong ever since. Hope you're enjoying it.

Nice to be here, I had no idea this site existed until yesterday.  Looks like some familiar names around.

Dear Rob,

I don't understand anything about electronic social networking. All I want to do is get in touch with you to discuss a few things. I'm at chp1000@cam.ac.uk if you would like to talk.

Hi Rob, guitar playing is going well thank you.  I've been asked to learn some French dances to accompany a historical dance class so that's keeping me nice and busy.  Hope all's well with you.

Yes - making one would be a nice way of knocking the rust off my instrument making skills.  Must see if I can get a set of dimensions.

Hi Rob.  I was quite inspired by Gordon's guitar playing on Saturday.  I'd always thought of the 4-course guitar as not much more than an instrument for providing chordal accompaniments - but apprently not!
