  1. Am I the only one here who thought it would be the Blues legend Robert Johnson?

  2. @nequillim That is a nasty glitch, which could damage speakers too. It would be nice if Bonproducer could re-up the video for a fresh transcode.

  3. Delicate music, beautifully played. And I might add how nice it is too see an artist take the trouble to dress nicely for a recording/video.

  4. The sheet music for this is in Serge Gerbode’s collection under RJohnson and then almain_07.pdf.

  5. sweet, Im building an electric lute, the next big thing in music mark my words.

  6. Well you should know, brother – you STOLE the music for the first off me years ago, but then I stole it back again later hehe 🙂

  7. Between Julian Bream’s modern version without any ornementation, very "dynamic" and the etheral interpretation of Konrad Junghanel for the first piece which is not a Galliard but an Almaine (called the "false Almaine") with an unexpected quick tempo.
    A good balance ! Deftly played with a great Renaissance flavour ! Nigel North is a great lute player !
    Great thanks !

  8. r u sure this isnt music by John Johnson, lutanist in the elizabethan era?

  9. Soo strong and energy with sweet and gladly, i really love it, hail from Brazil

  10. The most sophisticated lutenist of his generation – he really makes the lute sing!

  11. First time I’ve heard this version: only knew Gibbons’ for virginal (No2)…

  12. Well that can be your subjective thought, but my personal experience with Nigel is completely opposite. He is a great player and a nice guy.

  13. How do you know his lute is by Jonsson? Fine performance, anyway! 🙂

  14. Truly beautiful sound on this recording of the wonderful Mr North. Thanks for uploading.
