The Lute Works of John Johnson. Transcribed and edited by John M. Ward. One of Elizabeth I’s musitians for the three lutes, John Johnson was the earliest of the lutenist-composers of the Golden Age of English lute music. His widely disseminated works, some of which require considerable virtuosity, were admired and emulated by his most distinguished successor John Dowland, as well as Byrd, Morley, Farnaby and others. After Dowland, he was the English composer best known abroad. First complete edition of his works. 23 pavans, galliards and miscellaneous works for solo lute, and 17 duets. 124 pp.
