Ah the Historical Anthology of Music
- that brings back memories! I remember looking through that in my school library and copying out the lute pieces to try on my guitar. I managed to find a second-hand copy of both volumes about 15 years ago; it's certainly a source worth having.
The Gaultier piece there (Mode sous-ionien) is from La Rhetorique des Dieux
by Denis Gaultier who was Ennemond's younger cousin. Ennemond is sometimes referred to as Gaultier le vieux
to distinguish him from his cousin and I think it has sometimes been difficult for scholars to untangle who wrote what because of the way in which names were rather incompletely cited in manuscripts and some printed sources.
There was another lutenist with a similar name - Jacques Gautier who worked at the English court in the early 17th century. Seemingly he left France for England in 1617, having been accused of murder! His music is sometimes confused with the other Gaultiers'.
