The Emperor’s Song

The classic Narváez arrangement for solo vihuela of Josquin’s Mille Regretz (A Thousand Regrets).

Luis de Narváez (fl.1530-1550)
La Canción del Emperador
from ‘Los seys libros del delphin (Valladolid, 1538)
Performed by Hideki Yamaya, vihuela

A thousand regrets at deserting you
and leaving behind your loving face,
I feel so much sadness and such painful distress,
that it seems to me my days will soon dwindle away.

    Who made Hideki’s vihuela?
