Some of Sor's Arietts in Italian, with the original piano accompaniments arranged for guitar by Rob MacKillop
All Sor's Italian Arietts, Duets, and the Three Canons are published in printed form by Tecla. The Tecla printed edition contains them all with their original piano accompaniments. However, it is known that Sor himself accompanied some of them on the guitar, so here are some of them with the original piano accompaniments arranged for guitar by Rob MacKillop.
It's interesting how well and naturally some of them fit the guitar, and it means that here is a whole new repertory for singers, both with piano from the Tecla printed book, and with guitar from here on this site.
So far in this series of arietts with piano accompaniments arranged for guitar are:
cara, da quel giorno primier", no. 3 in Sor's First Set of
the beginning of the song.
In each case the original piano accompaniment has been arranged for guitar by Rob MacKillop. Both are fine songs, and the accompaniments fit the guitar well.
