The music on this album is made up of original versions of tunes found in the Scottish lute and cittern manuscripts of the 17th century, arrangements of tunes from the 18th and 20th centuries, and new pieces composed in 2001. Rob is a master of the 12-course lute, cittern, mandour and oud. He is joined on some tracks by poet James Robertson and Steve Player (rattlesnake guitar). 'dazzling virtuosity... exceptionally musical... beautifully played' (Sounding Strings)
