Baroque Guitar

This style of guitar was popular in the 17th and 18th centuries. I am playing a guitar built by Paul Baker in 2015, his own design based on instruments by Stradivarius. 
Amarilla, Mia Bella
Caccini, Van Eyck, And Me
This work was a poem by Giovanni or Allesandro Guarini,  set to music by Giulio Caccini. Jan Van Eyck included a version of the melody in his famous work Fluyten lust hof in 1649. I added haronization based (more or less) on Caccini, in an arangement I was working on for a performance with a recorder playing friend.  As I was working it over, I decided that it might make an interesting baroque guitar solo, and this is the result. I hope you like it. The pdf is available for free download on my "scores" page.
