Ricercare XVI by Francesco Canova da Milano (1497–1543) arranged for classical guitar in notation or notation + Tablature (TAB). Francesco Canova da Milano (1497–1543) was an Italian lutenist and composer. He was praised throughout Europe as the foremost lute composer of his time. More of his music is preserved than of any other lutenist of the period. A ricercare is an imitative work and, in some ways, a precursor to the Baroque fugue.
