I too was surprised to find Lucy's version listed as by Dowland. I googled it and found this http://www.1006.idv.tw/scores/Luto/Anonim/002.pdf
It says "Anonymous" but is in the Dowland lute book.

The so-called Folger Dowland Manuscript may have belonged to the Dowland family and contains some pieces in John Dowland’s handwriting but the other pieces are unlikely to be by Dowland. Wilson's Wilde is there, but not thought to be by Dowland.

The MS is held in the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington DC and a facsimile is available on the Musick’s Handmade site (find by Googling) together with MIDI files and transcriptions into modern tablature and grand staff notation, so it's a good source for finding new pieces.

Very nice! :)

Interesting that your ukulele sounds much more like a lute or early guitar, than a modern guitar, so that gives your recording a special quality. :casque:

Thank you,Lucy. One of the reasons the ukulele sounds more like a baroque guitar might be the re-entrant tuning with the fourth string an octave higher, similiar to the fifth string on a baroque guitar. This enables the player to play scales in "campanella-style" with the notes on different strings ringing into each other like churchbells.
Sanz sounds very authentic this way. Rob MacKillop has written some nice arrangements of Sanz.

I agree, I didn't think an ukulele would sound do good.

Nicely done Crisscross! I love the way some notes on ukulele sound harpish in their tonality and decay (especially when played -- and I don't think you are doing this here -- in Campanella style or with harmonics). You have really brought out the sweetest sounds of uke in your recording, and I appreciate it. Love two of the ascending thirds of particular dark and sweet tonality at 0:10 - 0:11!

Having come to guitar FROM uke, I really appreciate this gem of a recording! By the way I have RM's Sanz arrangements and Etudes and have really enjoyed them. (Have been focusing on guitar the last 2 yrs or so,but your recording here has inspired me to revisit sooner rather than later)

Thank you,
Doug Miller
