What people have said about this book ...

I'm a historical harpist in Boston. I perform solo, and in Renaissance and Baroque chamber groups. I play a renaissance single-row and an Italian double (by Thurau). I just acquired an arpa de dos ordenes (by Kortier), so I'm getting into the mind set of the Spanish cross-strung. I do have a copy of the Luz y Norte, but am pleased to get your version, plus the Huete. Thanks for publishing these. It's really super to work from them.
