  2. From the Brno CZ-Bm371 manuscript, here is a courante in Bb Major attributed to Johann Georg Weichenberger. In other manuscripts the same piece is attributed to S.L. Weiss. My money is on Johann for this one. Highly ornamented as written, I've opted to simplify the first time through and play ornaments as written on the repeats. Performed by Daniel Shoskes on an 11 course gut strung Tomlinson baroque lute

    I started to learn the baroque lute % months ago. Can any of you guys advise me on where I can get/buy the tablature for the 13 c lute?
