GUEST,Ian Pittaway Historical song accompaniment? (33) RE: Historical song accompaniment? 14 Sep 06

Tootler, you're quite right, I didn't make myself clear. I should have typed "I know of no examples of lutenists (or players of anything else) from that period or later arranging TRADITIONAL songs for instruments as *accompaniments* to singers", as this is the theme of this thread. Of course, there was Dowland, Johnson, Pilkington, etc., and fab they were (I sing their songs with the lute), but a million miles away from any notion of *traditional* songs with lute accompaniment, which was my intended point. And yes, Scotus, it was Davy Stewart whose name I'd forgotten.
