Notes and Editorial Reviews

Despite its title this is not merely another programme of lute music. Jacob Heringman, a distinguished lutenist, here shows his considerable technical and musical skills on three lutes, vihuela, cittern and renaissance guitar. His choice of repertoire springs from his particular love of 16th-century music and it includes many items by neglected composers, most of which have not been recorded before.

There is an abundance of dances and fantasias, the staple diet of most lutenists, but Heringman also focuses on the important but generally overlooked area of intabulations, adaptations of vocal works for the lute and vihuela. Since the plucked-string instruments lack the sustaining power of the human voice the vocal lines were

This disc offers a unique variety of music, some of it rescued from undeserved oblivion, played on a matching variety of instruments and superbly recorded. The supple expressivity of the performances reflects Heringman’s love of the music. What more is there to be said, other than to urge anyone with an interest in this small but very lush musical pasture to buy it without delay.

 Time Travel with the Lute February 6, 2014 By Pamela H. (Princeton, NJ) See All My Reviews "I feel like I am in the court of a 16th century nobleman when listening to this CD! It is gently evocative on a quiet afternoon. I am particularly pleased to have the Milan and Mudarra, because I studied them in classical guitar lessons! The liner notes are very helpful, too!" Report Abuse
 Not for casual listening February 3, 2014 By Emmett Hoops (Saranac Lake, NY) See All My Reviews "One of the benefits of an LP is that one side generally carries only 20 minutes of music. A CD, on the other hand, can carry over an hour. This is detrimental to my enjoyment of these lute songs, few of which are longer than a standard popular song. The sound of the lute can get monotonous very rapidly when the majority of the music dates from the same era. Recommendation: record this to your computer, then make two CDs." Report Abuse
