NOTES

74 Back See the thematic catalogue of Chilesotti’s lute and guitar transcriptions published in Rumore/Zanenghi 1987.

75 Back Pieces in this source are identified by the sequential number of the sonata in which they appear therein, followed, in parentheses, by the page number in Reich 1979, a reduced facsimile edition of the five solo lute manuscripts. Thus ‘Dresden 4 (Reich 1979, p. 22)’ identifies the piece in question as a member of the fourth sonata in the Dresden sequence, which is reproduced on p. 22 of Reich’s edition.

76 Back The numbering scheme derived from this continuing edition (and thus only complete for London and Dresden) gives sonata- and movement-numbers separated by a slash. E.g. ‘Weiss SWL 21/4’ refers to the fourth movement of sonata 21. Isolated movements not found as part of a sonata are listed separately with an asterisk following the number, thus: ‘3*’.
