Le Luth Doré ® is pleased to announce the publication of 'A Method For The Renaissance Lute, With a Supplement for the Archlute' by Peter Croton (concert performer, recording artist, lute teacher at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, President of the German Lute Society, author).
"I have had a great interest in the renaissance music throughout my adult life. I have used classical guitar and a special alto guitar to approach this beautiful ancient music, but all the time I wanted to have a real lute, with the real lute sound and design. Finally, I have obtained a such instrument from Le Luth Doré ® in Paris."
"To conclude, Miguel Serdoura and Le Luth Doré ® did and keep doing an amazing job. They create impressive instruments for an incredible price tag! I can only recommend Le Luth Doré ® brand if you are searching for a stunning instrument made with care and a great vision. Applause!"
"It is magical to think that an instrument of this caliber is available without the prolonged wait and understandably large price tag from U.K. luthiers with their higher workshop costs. How many potential players have been put off by that? This lute goes far beyond my expectations"
