I like lute music, especially as the evening draws on and into the night I listen to it while reading.

The lute - an instrument greatly favoured in the Renaissance, btw.

any particular composer? I am only familiar with lute works of Bach (because back at PMS, our teacher gave us some preludes to train technique of left hand)

I remember this one - Prelude for Lute, BWV 999

Edvard Grieg - Peer Gynt

Not sure, but yes, I like the lute works of Bach, but also especially the lute transcriptions of the cello suites and of the partitas & sonatas for violin solo. Check out Hopkinson Smith's interpretation of the former and Paul Galbraith's for the latter.

This is also played on the harpsichord. Cf. Robert Hill on YT "lute harpsichord"
