Notes & Reviews:

This special release of vihuela music from renaissance Spain includes little known music by Enriquez de Valderrabano (Silva de sirenas, 1547) and Miguel de Fuenllana (Orphenica lyra, 1554) together with renowned works by Narvaez and Mudarra. The performer needs to achieve a sublime level of introspective delicacy, bringing out the music's delicate polyphonic interplay and glorious singing melodies, and capturing the essence of renaissance sensibility. One of today's most renowned scholar-performers, John Griffiths plays a vihuela embodying the most recent historical research.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
John Griffiths is Australian. He has performed on vihuela, lute, and early guitars for four decades, has directed early music studies at the University of Melbourne, and has an extensive record of written scholarship in early music. This recital is elegant, subtle, expressive, and mostly slow. The vihuela repertory is like that - there are a few pieces that can liven up a performance. The playing here is, indeed, subtle. There are a dozen levels of pianissimo, lovingly shaped. Griffiths plays them here as part of 'Otros Tres Diferencias' (another three variations).
