A selection of favorite pieces from the Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque eras adapted for the Ukulele or Renaissance Guitar, using musical notation and tablature.

Ancient music written for the modern ukulele ….. None!

Playing ancient music on the ukulele ….. Absolutely!

This collection of favorite pieces from the Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque eras are adapted for the Ukulele or Renaissance Guitar, using musical notation and tablature. These pieces are the favorites of the arranger, Robert Vanderzweerde, for many reasons. Some are just fun to play, many will be recognized by music lovers of other genres so they become great "set" pieces when asked to demonstrate what you do and, finally, Robert performed many of these pieces while learning to play classical guitar and they have remained favorites ever since. The pieces in this book are ordered first by musical era and then by degree of difficulty, starting with those that are easier. When playing a soprano, concert or tenor ukulele, linear tuning is required (i.e. using a low G string). Notes about the composers and pieces are at the back of this book.
