In late September 2021, I traveled to Cambridge, England to attend a four-day symposium held by the Cambridge Consortium for Guitar Research. During my stay, I videoed Dr. Christopher Page performing Fernando Sor’s, Progressive Study at Sidney Sussex Chapel.

One of my favorites websites with an eclectic assortment of historical guitars from the leading makers of their day.
