Among the various selections contained in this recording, the common aspect connecting them all is that none were originally composed for the guitar. The modern classical guitar was at least a half-century away from being the standard plucked instrument of the day when the composers on this recording were active, and with the exception of Johann Sebastian Bach, none of them composed for the 18th-century relative of the guitar, the lute. It was then, and still is today for that matter, common practice that music written for one instrument should be transcribed for another. This centuries-old tradition is continued with these selections.
