In 1927, at a concert in London, Segovia performed two Dowland galliards. Dowland’s solo lute music was almost unknown at this time. Where did Segovia get these pieces from? The answer is not straightforward, but Peter Warlock, who transcribed several pieces from manuscript tablatures in the 1920s, played a part. These three articles tells the story, and resolve a puzzle over one of the Dowland pieces in Segovia’s repertoire
