"Jerry Willard has a delightful selection of music for his baroque guitar by composers known to specialists, played with engaging flair and recorded with immediacy."

"Willard's approach to this music is elegant and graceful...If you enjoy the subtle charms of the baroque guitar, this program is a delight."
-Keaton
American Record Guide, March, 2009

For master lutenist and guitarist Jerry Willard's third Lyrichord CD, he plays the seldom heard Baroque guitar, performing musical gems of the baroque era composed by four different masters: Gaspar Sanz, Santiago de Murcia, Johann Anton Logy and Ludovico Roncalli. The "Suite in A minor" by Johann Anton Logy, rarely heard on the Baroque guitar, is a transcription from the lute to the Baroque guitar by the composer himself. Topping off this recital, is Roncalli's "Passacaglia" - a piece made famous hundreds of years later in an orchestral arrangement by the Italian composer Ottorino Respighi in his "Ancient Dances and Airs for Lute Suites.
