To the Elizabethans and Jacobeans of early 17th Century England, the lute was undoubtedly the most important instrument at all levels of society. It was the principle instrument used to accompany the voice, at court, theatre or home; amateurs played it for domestic music making. Professionals like John Dowland entertained royalty around Europe with their own music composed and performed on the lute. Nigel North was initially inspired into music, at age 7, by the early 60s instrumental pop group The Shadows. Nigel studied classical music through the violin and guitar, eventually discovering his real path in life, the lute, when he was 15. Basically self-taught on the lute, for over 30 years, he has developed a unique musical life which embraces activities as a teacher, accompanist, soloist, director and writer.

"The recorded sound is excellent - detailed yet with a resonant bloom." - BBC Music Magazine

"North deserves his places among the finest living lutenists." - Gramophone
