Adrian Le Roy Transcriptions – Book 1
Adrian Le Roy, born in the early 1500s in Montreuil-sur-Mer, France was a musician and music publisher. In 1551, Le Roy and his cousin Robert Ballard received a royal privilege from Henry II to print music. Le Roy is the author of several books of music for the lute and 4 course renaissance guitar.
I am working on transcribing his first book, Premier Livre de Tabulature de Guiterre. Each transcription includes an image of the original tablature from the book, a PDF in modern notation, a MuseScore file for use with the MuseScore scoring software, and an mp3. The mp3 files are computer generated midi – they are not live performance.
