Lute Music

This page contains links to various lute music I have worked on or am interested in. Possibly best to tag this not of general interest. If you do choose to download and hopefully play any of this music, please do let me know if you find any errors (there are bound to be some!). Thank you!

Kalmar 21.068

Last update: 04 Sep 2019 (rev 0.9.6)

This is a performing edition of the Stahlhammer manuscript (S-Klm ms 21.068) found in the Läns Museum, Kalmar, Sweden. It is an excellent collection of tunes, mostly French, collected for a Swedish semi-noble at the end of the 17th Century. Many of the pieces are known from other manuscripts but there are a number of unique tunes in here. Best of all, they are playable by someone without virtuoso skills.

The facsimile of the manuscript can be found here and the TAB source files are here. A landscape version of the manuscript is also available. Note that the sources are for the portrait version only.
