Summary:

Jacob Heringman is one of the world’s most respected and innovative solo lute players. He is well known for his extensive discography of over 50 CDs as a soloist, collaborator and ensemble player. His well-earned reputation for seeking out rare and unjustly neglected renaissance repertoire is borne out by The Siena Lute Book, one of the richest and most important sources of 16th-century Italian lute music. Represented in this expansive anthology are the great Francisco da Milano, the neglected master Fabritio Dentice, Giulio Severino, Pierino Fiorentino, as well as the mysterious FB and BM, the latter described by Galilei as a “Florentine gentleman”.
