Duet: Canone & Spagna a due liuti by Francesco da Milano

Canone & Spagna a due liuti by Francesco da Milano (c. 1497–1543) – From the Cavalcanti lute book (1590). Period lute duets arranged for 2 guitars in score format (two pages for each piece). The score includes notation only and is a PDF download. Includes a fingered version for regular guitar tuning and an unfingered version for relative lute tuning or alternative fingering. Thanks to Douglas Hensley for joining me. Youtube Video Link – We are using the unfingered score, and have our 3rd strings tuned to F# (relative lute tuning).
