QUOTES

Arthur Ness: ‘I’ve enjoyed your lute pieces. There really should be more modern music for our instrument.
Brian Wright (composer, lutenist) : This music you are creating is beautiful, exciting and always stimulating
Dick Hoban (LSA) : This is very interesting music.’
Denys Stephens (UK Lute Society) : ‘This is exciting and attractive lute music’
David Van Ooijen :It is good to see more and more modern music for lute is written, performed and published. This way our beloved instrument will be able to secure a place for itself in the future, not just in the past.
