"This beautifully engineered CD will appeal to classical guitar lovers and Early Music aficionados. Lonardi's creative arrangements of these very early guitar and vihuela pieces are appropriate and flawlessly played (on two wonderful renaissance guitar replicas). His choice of composers and pieces is perfect. Recorded in a church in Italy, the sounds is open and airy, with natural reverb and the slightest hint of birds singing in the background... a real treat to listen to with good headphones. This recording belongs in every classical guitar player's library as Chapter I in the history of the guitar. I almost hate to say it, but this delightful CD is so perfect (technically and musically), that I have often put it on to fall asleep to (and that is meant as a high compliment!) Every track is a gem... many of the pieces are not often recorded, but even the requisite Mudarra and Fuenllana are played with freshness. [The pieces by Adrian Le Roy will sound pleasantly familiar to anyone who enjoyed Hopkinson Smith's Attaignant CD... each performer has woven very creative (totally different) improvisations on these sketchy written themes.]"
