16 ENGLISH FOLK SONGS FOR GUITAR ARRANGED DUARTE
John Duarte was passionate about introducing English musicians to the cultural wealth of their own indigenous folk songs. Using the great collection of folk songs that were run to earth in the early 1900s by Cecil Sharpe and Ralph Vaughan Williams among many others, Duarte has made a selection of what he considered beautiful, characterful tunes, set them for the Guitar student and collected them in Sixteen English Folk Songs.Duarte originally earned a degree in chemistry and worked as an industrial chemist for year before abandoning that life to devote himself to music. His life as a Guitarist, composer, teacher and writer was long and fulfilling. He composed 150 works, mainly for Guitar, ranging widely over many styles, including various national idioms.
