Notes & Reviews:

As a virtuoso on the viola da gamba, Henry Butler's fame stretched beyond the region and epoch in which he was employed. This is remarkable, since his work was never published during his lifetime because of an exclusive contract with his employer, the Spanish court. Butler's style of Divisions is very elaborate, and demonstrates a profound knowledge of the instrument. In his music one can find a level of technical difficulty that remains unmatched in all successive epochs.
