Capirola, Vincenzo

The Vincenzo Capirola Lute Book

The Capirola Lute Book, dating back to approximately 1517, holds a prominent status as one of the foremost sources of lute music from the early 16th century. This invaluable collection of Capirola's compositions has been meticulously preserved in manuscript form. Vidal, a devoted pupil of Capirola, played a vital role in safeguarding his master's work for posterity. Not only did Vidal transcribe the lute tablature of Capirola's pieces, but he also adorned the pages with captivating marginal drawings. It is plausible that Vidal believed that the allure of these visual embellishments would enhance the appreciation and preservation of these musical treasures by future generations.
