Blogging from the Murcia region of Spain until early June, when I return to
the Highlands of Scotland for a few months

Spanish classical guitar music - Santiago de Murcia

Little seems to be known about where Santiago de Murcia was born or what were the precise dates of his birth and death, although his dates are thought (by the Naxos classical music label) to be 1685-1732; this potted biography seems less certain, although it does seem certain about where he lived from 1714. However, his music is enjoyable and this piece was played by Paul O'Dette on baroque guitar at the New York Guitar Festival a couple of years ago. Enjoy!
