Once again, Cantus is proud to announce a world première. As has already happened with some of our previous CDs, our label is rescuing from oblivion not only a repertoire, but this time also an instrument - the Renaissance guitar. This is the first CD entirely devoted to the 4-course Renaissance guitar.

The first three composers are represented in this recording by a selection of exquisite pieces chosen by our soloist, the American guitarist and lutenist Michael Craddock, who is at present living in Basel.

This delicious repertoire includes demanding fantasies, beautiful intabulations of well known chansons by Certon or Sermissy, and dances of popular origin. All this music is revived in the prodigious hands of Michael Craddock, a sensitive performer gifted with a transparent and clear touch and an amazing technique.
