In this collection by Allan Alexander and Jessica Walsh you will find traditional music, pieces by Carolan, and also pieces that were written for lute and mandora over 400 years ago. There is a surprising similarity in the sound of the lute and mandora music and the sound of many of the traditional pieces from Ireland and Scotland. It is an amazing feeling to play a dance that is this old... to play the same notes another musician played back in the Renaissance.

    If you are at all interested in Turlough O'Carolan tunes on mandolin, this book is a great buy. Tab is included and the recordings on theCD are well done. When you play his songs from this book you will feel Irish composing genious. Well done. Highly recomended!
