Waters, Eric - Guitar Music From Tres Libros De Musica
Guitar Music from Tres Libros de Music: The Oldest Surviving Music for the Guitar
transcribed and edited by Eric Waters
"In 1546, forty-four years after the final voyage of Christopher Columbus and while the Spanish Conquistadors swept through the Americas, Alonso Mudarra published his Tres libros de musica (Three Books of Music). These books, devoted primarily to music for the vihuela, voice and harp also contain six pieces that are described by The New Harvard Dictionary of Music as ""the earliest printed music"" for the guitar. In this case- that would be the 4-course Renaissance guitar.
In Guitar Music from Tres libros de musica, George Washington University guitar instructor Eric Waters has transcribed and edited these six selections from the original 16th century tablature. Each piece is presented both in standard musical notation and in a modern adaptation of the original tablature (with mensural rhythms printed above). Tablature and music are printed separately to eliminate page turns.
