The Lute Appendix ii

A list of recordings consulted for my series of articles The Lute. This is a work in progress, and I will be adding to it regularly through the process of developing the series.

Many of these recordings include detailed and illuminating liner notes as well, and every recording on this list is one I think highly of.

All of these recordings are on compact disc, and all are DDD unless otherwise noted. In most cases, for recordings with two dates, the first date indicates the year of the initial analog recording and the second date indicates its subsequent digital remastering.

Some discs are listed in more than one category.
