Compiled between about 1620 and 1650 by the Munich painter Albrecht W?rl, this manuscript collection of early 17th century baroque lute music includes dances and song settings by many of the earliest generation of lutenist-composers working in the ‘new tunings’ (accords nouveaux). W?rl’s ability to notate the pieces he collected with accuracy seems to have been severely hampered by the rapid degradation of his eyesight. Because of this, and the fact that W?rl’s lute book contains many unique anonymous works, this manuscript, which is full of beautiful music has been overlooked for far too long. Canadian lutenist Evan Plommer presents reconstructed and revitalized versions of 36 pieces in 5 different tunings for baroque lute, including W?rl’s elaborations as well as those of his own making.

Evan Plommer's CD of lute pieces from the lute book of Albrecht W?rl is highly recommended! The mostly dance pieces are played to perfection with Plommer's excellent sense of tempo, poise, phrasing, ornamentation, and delicate touch on the lute's silvery-timbred gut strings. Pay special attention to the feisty sarabandes performed with bravura! The clarity of articulation is exceptional and the microphone has captured complete live takes without editing at just the right optimal distance from the rich-toned lute made by Travis Carey. The lute is modeled on the type used during this "transitional tuning" period of the lute's history: with the four lowest bass courses progressively lengthened on a "stepped" pegbox extension most often seen in paintings from this period in France, England and the Low Countries. The preparation for this recording was no easy task, for Plommer had to thoroughly edit every measure of each piece to correct a multitude of errors in the manuscript. The result is a solid triumph and this CD should be in every lute and early music enthusiast's library.
