Lyra Sonora - The Sonorous Lute - a reference to the harp-like instrument of Classical Antiquity - takes the shape of the very resonant 12-course double-headed lute, a popular instrument frequently depicted by 17th-century Dutch and English painters. An instrument seldom heard today, sadly neglected in the lute renaissance of the 20th century. Anders Ericson has for this recording uncovered exciting original music, much of which is here for the first time presented to the modern audience.

Charles Mouton was the last representative of the Parisian school of lute playing that was the dominant lute style in Europe during the whole seventeenth century. His elegant and refined music retrospectively summons up this glorious repertoire without being antiquated. On this CD Anders Ericson has put together four suites of pieces to present the finest components of Charles Mouton's art.

Anders Ericson’s debut solo CD released on Daphne Records is focused on both famous and less well known French composers for the baroque lute. A majority of the programme is not previously recorded and therefore available now for the first time to the listener. This sublime and intriguing music by François Dufaut, Jean Mercure, Jacques Gallot and Germain Pinel performed by Anders Ericson shows the splendour and colour of 17th century France.
