    Default I need a renaissance piece, suggestions?

    Hello all.
    I'm looking for a renaissance piece for about 3-6 instruments, preferrably with some or all of these:
    Guitar/lute (a must)
    Harpsichord
    Viola
    Flute

    Any ideas?

    I think the guy you're looking for is John Dowland. He was the lute legend back then - not really renaissance but more early baroque. If you want to hear renaissance music, your best bet is choral music. Palestrina and Monteverdi are composers to look out for.
    When all the paint has been dried, when all the stone has been carved, music shall remain, and we shall work with what remains.
