 “For the past twenty years it has been my privilege to perform for a wide variety of dinner parties and special events. This collection contains many of those selections that I consistently play whenever I am hired.”      -- Phillip Lester

The CD is designed around the concept of a Menu. The appetizers include short Italian Renaissance lute pieces and captivating Spanish melodies setting a relaxed atmosphere.  The entrees in this collection include several selections by J.S. Bach including Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring. There are songs that calm the spirit including the haunting Gymnopedies by the Impressionistic French composer Erik Satie, the ever popular Greensleeves, and the majestic Pachelbel Canon, twenty selections in all.   Extended notes on the menu are available here.
