CATALOGUE:
The different ensembles are grouped as follows:-

AUDIO FILES:

Some of these are just the products of the Sibelius notation software (used with very little skill!). There are links to York Guitar Quartet playing some of the pieces and also to guitar versions done rather amateurishly by myself but at least it should give some idea of what the pieces sound like.

I have put up links to the performances of other world-wide ensembles and if you have a link to a performance that you would like me to add, I should be happy to do so.


INSTRUMENTS
The pieces are for standard (tenor) guitars, requintos (altos in A), and bass guitars (a standard guitar bass - known as the contrabass in the Niibori system) in a variety of combinations.
If performed publicly, please also let the venue know the name of the piece, composer and arranger.
Within the description of each piece of music an optional instrument is indicated in enclosed brackets. For example, (rqt/gtr1) signifies that the same part is available for requinto or guitar. You may make as many prints as you like but not change anything without permission.
GRADING
A grading system has been used which follows that of the internationally recognised Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music and Trinity Guildhall. The system is graded from 1 to 8. Grade 9 is allocated to virtuosic pieces. So, within each individual piece of music you will find numbers indicating the degree of competence required to play each part.
