Marco Dall’Aquila was a Venetian lutenist and composer born in L’Aquila but resided and worked in Venice. He is known mainly for his Ricercars which make up the majority of his surviving works. Here is my YouTube link if you want to watch my performance and lesson there.

Below is an audio recording by Shirley Rumsey on lute via this Naxos Album.
