      Louis Pernot, a French lutenist who has been playing lute since he was thirteen, is about to
      release a worldwide first. The recording of the Book of Perrine is a seventeenth-century
      masterpiece, recorded in Switzerland, on which he has been working for the past ten
      years.

      It comprises some of the most beautiful pieces of Ennemond Gaultier, exclusively written
      for baroque lute. Unlike most other lute pieces, this one was transcribed by Perrine, a
      contemporary of the authors, from tablatura to modern technique. This has made the
      Book a fabulous interpretation tool for other pieces; a sort of Rosetta stone. It gives
      indications about left- and right-hand positions; about ornementation, arpegements.

      You can listen to a preview of this album, and several others, online at his website:
      www.frenchlute.com. The website also contains a lot of information on lute music and
      technique, an has links to original tablatura. Please feel free to ask any questions you
      have; you can reach Louis at louis@....

      Enjoy!
