The goal was to make these absolutely beautiful pieces of music accessible for the guitarist who may not be a virtuoso in ability. Where necessary the pieces were transcribed into "guitar friendly" keys and the articulation markings were edited so that the slurs and ornamentations would lie well on the guitar fingerboard.

The pieces may be performed by either a fingerstyle or classic guitarist or with the use of a flatpick. These pieces should be ideal in concert, recital or festival.
