Public Research Seminar: Elizabeth Kenny


Lute technology underwent something of a revolution at the end of the sixteenth century. A new breed of instruments with long neck extensions expanded the instrument family’s range downwards. Prototypes were tested, tunings explored and a flurry of collaborations between instrument makers and player-composers spawned a new the repertoire for the new theorbo and archlute. The theorbo, the largest of the family, is now a commonplace feature of late renaissance and baroque ensembles.
