Lawrence-King has selected works from Spanish 16th century harpists and then traces the movement of these influences to Naples and Southern Italy in the works of 5 Italian harpists. Whereas the title refers to Luduvico, all 7 of these harpists were followers of Ludovico, ending with the works of Frescobaldi, a renouned harpists in Rome. Andrew Lawrence-King built or had built wooden harps with non-metal strings to try to capture the sound of these original compositions. The effect is fantastic, with a warmth akin to the lute, with none of the metalic twang of some modern orchestral harpists. I have owned this CD for around 15 years and I often pull it out to absorb its radiance one more time.

Treat yourself to it, even if it means pawning something you can live without’ (Gramophone) ‘This is a stunning record’ (Fanfare, USA).

The Harp of Luduvíco: Fantasias, Arias and Toccatas by Frescobaldi and His Predecessors - Andrew Lawrence-King. Half of the disc is taken up by six pieces from Trabaci, a harpist, organist and singer who was an important forerunner of Frescobaldi; the remainder comes from a variety of composers all of whom lived between the late sixteenth and mid-seventeenth centuries. If the music itself sounds like it could just as easily be heard on the lute or keyboard, that's because it originally was. In fact, all of the pieces here were written for these instruments (or voice), as very little music that was written for harp during this period has survived
