This website celebrates the enchanting nature of instrumental classical music written for the guitar and related instruments, from the 16th century to the present day.  It sounds out the magical and mystical.

The music it embraces is rich in melodies, harmonies, rhythms, feelings, passions.  Although it is very connected to — and a part of — the societies and times in which it was created, its everlasting emotional depth is just as resonant today in our place and time, and indeed, takes on a whole new enchanting nature.

Instrumental music is an emotional journey, actively taken by performer and audience alike, rather than songs or program music where words and thoughts lead a good part of the journey.

You can listen to samples of Michel Sherman's recordings, buy CDs, or download tracks or whole albums at  Just click on the CDBaby icon in the panel on the right.

This music is also available at iTunes, Amazon, other music sites, and at music stores.

Enjoy your many journeys!
