Although there are no surviving musical scores from the 16th century written specifically for the harp, at the time the harp was considered interchangeable with keyboard instruments or the lute for performance. Thus, it was common during the period to write keyboard and lute music that could be adapted and played on the harp. This collection of lute transcriptions offer a number of short, easy pieces as well as intermediate compositions that will provide good materials for teaching and performance. In order to preserve the style of the Renaissance period, the pieces have not been modified in any way that would change what the original composers intended. All the pieces were transcribed without editorial changes besides occasionally transposing some octaves to make the music more suitable for the harp. A glossary of musical forms is also provided. Due to the considerable number of accidentals in the pieces, the book has been written with the pedal-harp in mind. However, signs and tuning indications have been provided for the lever-harp players who want to play these pieces.
