En Frolyk Weson
An arrangement, for guitar duet, of a 15th century song by Barbireau. FREE and complete version.  The approach taken here was that of making an arrangement for two Renaissance lutes, so there are some cadential roulades added. A fun piece for intermediate or advanced players. (.mid)
Spanish Dance No. 2 (Granados)
Transcription, for guitar duet, of this wonderful piece originally for piano. FREE and complete version.
Zarabanda Vivo (guitar duet)
A fast, sensuous, perpetual motion piece in a very expressionistic style; for two guitars. Intermediate to advanced players. Here is a midi file of the full piece -- again, note that it does not accurately render many of the more interesting timbral features of the piece (pizzicato, harmonics) but gives somewhat of an overall feel. $5.00 US (.mid)

Sevillanas (vln or flute/gtr)
A short dance for violin and guitar (or flute and guitar) that was written as incidental music to F. Lorca's Blood Wedding. Very rhythmic and aggressive, in a modern harmonic idiom. $3.00 US (.mid)

Sonata for Flute and Guitar
Three movement piece for flute and guitar; A true duet (the guitar is not just accompaniment). Written in a modern expressionist style (lyrical, but lots of dissonance). $5.00 US Here are some VERY LIFELESS midis to give you some idea of the piece: mvmt1 mvmt2 mvmt3

Variations on a Shaker Theme(fl/gtr)
A small set (about 6 minutes)  of variations on the American Shaker tune "Simple Gifts." For flute and guitar. The theme is at the end. The variations are in a very expanded tonality, but very lyrical. For intermediate to advanced players. This is a true duet, not for flute and "accompaniment." Here is a midi file of full piece -- note that it does not accurately render many of the more interesting timbral features of the piece (pizzicato, harmonics) but gives somewhat of an overall feel. $5.00 US (.mid)

Sweet and Various the Woodlark
An original setting, for solo soprano voice and guitar, on lyrics by the Beat poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti. FREE and complete version.  An appropriately modern setting for this wonderful poem. Advanced level.
