Those who were there remember a performance of Britten's Nocturnal After Dowland at one of our Lute Society summer weekends. In the bar afterwards someone described the performance as demonstration that the guitar could be played perfectly without nails. I suggested it had proved the opposite and a lively debate ensued. When looking through a catalogue of CDs on the Alpha label I was reminded of this conversation when I discovered a CD of the Nocturnal played on lute. Although this wouldn't be for me others may be interested. Forgive me rattling on if you already know this recording but just in case not the details are below this Email.All the best, Ray Black
