Robert Johnson (c.1580-c.1634) found steady employment providing music for the many court masques and entertainments during the Jacobean era, and became royal lutenist in the Kings "Private Musick" from 1604. This is a very simple, short but charming piece. [The photo is me 4 years old in Stockholm] ­čÖé Hope you like it… the music I mean .-) I amalso proud to announce that my arrangements, compositions and transcriptions are now available for purchasedownload at It is still growing so if you dont find a piece, it will be there soon. Please be patient… Per-Olov

  6. The only lute version of this Alman (Alemain) on YouTube is played ‘way too fast for my liking. By contrast, there are many guitar versions of the Alman on YouTube–this is the one I like best´╗┐ (it’s most similar to the recording I have at home of Julian Bream playing the piece on the lute).
