The couple rendezvous in the meadow as their attraction grows. Matthew Montfort brings new life to this romantic Scottish lute melody from 1615 with the ornaments and note bends of the scalloped fretboard guitar, an instrument combining aspects of the South Indian vina with the steel string guitar.
