I would appreciate your generous decision, Rob!  Although I'm yet another lucky guy who had purchased your CD, I downloaded the video to enjoy the drawings and photos.

It's really a shame that ASV is closed.  The record company offered a lot of excellent recordings which should be extremely suitable for the members of this website...

Thanks, Stuart. Although one or two copies of the CD can still be found in some shops, the record company no longer exists. Nor does the company which bought out the first company. Such is the record industry these days. So, I decided to give it away. I'm really proud of it - apparently the first CD entirely devoted to the instrument, and the first CD devoted to Oswald. It would be a shame if it disappeared forever.

The scores are available from my website, alongside more info: http://robmackillop.net/guitar/cittern/

Great, committed playing. (And I bought your CD a long while ago now)
