An English manuscript tutor of app. 140 pages for the eleven-course and twelve-course baroque lute. The teacher (possible John Rogers, d. 1676) filled in all the music examples after the pupil had copied the tutor. The teacher himself was probably a pupil of Ennemond Gaultier, so this tutor is especially appropriate for Hender Robert's lute book, which contains 65 pieces by Gaultier and his contemporaries. The Burwell tutor contains 16 pieces of music in various tunings by Dubut, Pinel, Vincent, The Marquis de Mortmar and 3 of the Gaultiers-English, Vieux and Jeune.
