The Triumph of Peace

The Triumph of Peace by William Lawes, english composer 1602 - 1645. The music is written for a masque.

I play the piece in an arrangement for guitar quartet. I play all the parts myself. Not the very best way to record classical music but I hope it works. I made the recording to help some of my students who were playing the piece.

I took the photos in the cathedral in Orvieto, Italy. It is a fresco by Luca Signorelli. He painted it a little bit more than one hundred years before the music was written, but in some way I think that the painting and the music goes well together.
