Notes & Reviews:

In his youth, lutenist Matthew Wadsworth spent hours listening to recordings of his idol, Julian Bream. Since that time, it was one of his life's goals to record the Varietie of Lute Lessons. 15 years later, the time was finally right. Wadsworth's choice of pieces for this recording was largely instinctive. It wasn't possible to record all 42 pieces, so he chose the ones that spoke to him the most at the time, with a view to representing all styles and genres of the book.

"Wadsworth's... playing... is stolid and deliberate yet strangely luminous - no light but rather darkness visible. In his hands Anthony Holborne, Thomas Morley and Daniel Batchelar's dark, sophisticated pavins... almost take on the character of late Beethoven." -Gramophone Magazine
