What people have said about this book ...

Greetings from Michigan. I just ordered two of your publications (Daniel Zuluaga told me that your newer edition of the Ribayaz is improved--- [over the old King's Music edition]).

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.

I was really happy to discover that you had a music sheet for the Ribayaz Tarantela, which I have been looking for... for just ages =) And as long as I'm ordering, I'll probably take the other baroque/medieval books as well, and say it's my non-birthday.

I am very happy to have finally found musik sheets of ruiz de ribayaz in your Luz y Norte transcription. I am no harpist, but a guitar player (well, a wanna-be-one in training..) and I have fallen in love with ruiz´s espanoletas. Therefore, I am interested in buying your transcription. But before doing so a short question with respect to the "transcription": is it a regular music sheet any musically literate person is able to or a kind of harp specific tabulature?

The music is written in piano score format and can be played on guitar or keyboard instruments as well as harp.
