Kapsberger wrote beautiful music for the lute, and was a leader viewed in awe in his day. If you are new to the lute, or baroque music, this is a wonderful introduction. If you are familiar with either, this is a wonderful addition to your collection.
Paul O'Dette is also a stunning player, and really brings the music to life.
The production on the album is also excellent - not too many echoes from playing in a huge cathedral, yet not too filtered to remove the tiny clicks and scrapes of the player's fingers...which never intrude, but show the very sympathetic balance between a "live" feel, and a clean recording.
The recording is very well executed and well worth the very small price. This is apparently volume 1, I await volume 2 eagerly

This is an extraordinary disk: beautiful and inventive music, played with wonderful tone and coherence.

I agree with the other reviewers here - this is a really cracking disc. You may like to know that it has been reissued in Harmonia Mundi's excellent Gold series and is still available very reasonably:Kapsberger - Lute Works

I absolutely love this album. I'm always giving it away so others can share the joy and happiness it brings. So I have to keep on buying it!

Paul O'Dette is a genius performer - intellectual, energetic and full of life. I'd love to see him play live.

And Kapsberger was plainly also a major genius, though sadly under-represented.

Buy this album, or you'll only experience half of life. Buy anything by Paul O'Dette if you ever touched, or were touched, by a guitar or lute. He's clever.

I absolutley (excuse the pun!) Love this albumn. It is on the difficult to find list and was extremely impressed with the speed with which this cd was sourced and dispatched from the USA. I woudl definatly use this company again to track down obscure music!

thoroughly enjoyable, can feature as background music when dining or to enjoy relaxing. Excellent lute playing with some slower pieces also jolly ones too.
