There are thousands of songs that could be described as falling into this category of love songs with these having been arranged for solo voice and lute accompaniment.
The songs are lyrical and flexible, pairing easily the subtle rhythms of the language and catchy melodies that cannot be easily pinned down by any modern concept of meter. Lovers of classical guitar will appreciate the crystal tones of its early cousin the lute, and lovers of art song will appreciate the clarity and warmth of the vocal style.
