Music of the British Isles consists of a broad spectrum of great music that you won't be able to stop playing!

Here you will find music from a lute manuscript, music of the great Renaissance composers John Dowland and Anthony Holborne, a haunting piece titled Down in Yon Forest, and beautiful pieces by the great harper composer Turlough O’Carolan. There are also traditional pieces such as Deever The Dancer and Slane, that have lasted because people could not stop humming them, and even a very early hypnotic hymn titled The Truth Above.

The pieces are carefully fingered to lay well on the fingerboard. You will find in this collection pieces you have never seen transcribed or arranged for guitar, and many of them have variations which extend the enjoyment.

In addition to having the scores from which you can play these pieces, the book also comes with a CD that is intended for both reference and pleasure listening.
