A feature work has been added: The Big Bach Lutebook, BWV 995-1012, which contains all of the three volumes of the Bach Lutebooks in pdf fomat. Covering the music traditionally assigned to the lute, (BWV 996-9), the complete Cello Suites (BWV 1007-12, it now concludes with the complete solo violin works, (BWV 1000/1001- to1006/1006a). Updated November 17, 2009. BWV 995 and 1010 each have their own versions.

The Big Bach Lutebook has been designed with no page turns within movements, to display easily and to print the whole oeuvre in three clicks. Individual suites have been left in their earlier, but still correct versions, larger print and single or double page display.

Yes, it was a lot of work, and you're welcome.

Recent additions (as of January 2010) include the new volume of Czech lute music (Dix, Jelinek, Kohut), a collated suite by Johann Anton Logy, and Six Sonatas paraphrased for the Six-Course guitar (playable on the modern classical guitar) in modern guitar tablature, Music by Soler, Rodriguez, Mateo Albeniz and Scarlatti's K. 208. These versions are considerably easier to play than most modern transcriptions of these pieces and far easier to read.
