Jose Miguel Morena – Vihuela and Lute – Music…

A nice video of a concert by Jose Miguel Morena that was given during the Early Music Festivals in St. Petersburg (Russia) has created interest for this musician.

The video can be found in the blog of the Russian camera man Roman Gurochkin. Moreno plays music of the Renaissance on a vihuela, at the end of the video he plays his version of the well known tune Canarios by Gaspar Sanz.
