Couperin's "les sylvains" for baroque guitar ?

Hello,Does any of our dear members know of a possible transcription of Couperin's "les Sylvains" for baroque guitar ? If not, what would be the best key to start with in creating a suitable transcription for a BG in "french" tuning (re-entrant A and octave on D). Knowing that the two best transcriptions for modern guitar are either in D (Philippe Meunier/Breitkopf) or in G (David Russell).Thanks in advance for your tips and answers.Regards,GillesSee More

"Thanks to the both of you for the prompt and helpful answer.  Yes, some Sanz work very well on 4 courses (and some de Murcia as well). As for Dowland, it is more challenging to keep the musical interest without thinning out two much the…"

adapting baroque pieces for 4-course ?

Hello all,Assuming, from various historical sources, that the 4-course guitar was still played well until the mid-seventeenth century (at least in continuo and maybe as a "popular" instrument) what are the baroque pieces — be it for lute or 5 course guitar — that seem to you to fit the most accurately a possible transcription for 4 course ? I know there once had been such transcriptions on the forum by Cogg, but the links on the score page don't work, so I think they're not available anymore. I…See More
