Mompou! Love suite Compostelana!

I second Villa-Lobos Prelude No 1 and the Prelude No 4; Carcassi Op60 No 6 alternates bass and treble. Some of Brower Simple Etudes also have a melody of sorts in the bass. Albeniz' Granada has melody in the bass too (lovely song).

Stephen Kenyon wrote:Actually its Lección 16 from his guitar method ... seems to be in ms in the Spencer collection, not sure if that piece exists outside it.

Yes - method and "coleccions" all in the Royal Academy library ... I'm not sure it's worth it to me to stump up probably £200+ for the lot which is why I want to have a look first (or glean someone's knowledge). I guess that your info is correct though.

Some more for the list:
Legnani - Caprices 1 & 9
Giuliani - Allegro Op.50, 13 (Le Papillon), Maestoso Op.51, 1
Barrios - Romance in Imitation of the Violoncello
