- A brief description
Before submitting a web site or a page, you must know that I am only looking for those dedicated to SL Weiss, other lute composers (JS Bach doesn’t belong to this category unless you find a site or page entirely devoted to his lute work), to the lute in general and to search engines and data bases entirely devoted to music.
I will make the selection myself. I know it is a subjective choice, but I have to do it. My choice will rely on the quality and the pertinence of the site, not on its presentation and ergonomy, even if I allow myself to mention what I feel is inadequate.
If you have a site to suggest, please indicate by e-mail :
