Inspired by the simple beauty of the songs of Stephen Collins Foster, I have sought with this edition to create complimentary arrangements of them for the classical guitar. Foster's published scores served me both as a harmonic basis, as well as a source of musical ideas from which these pieces then further developed, at times more or less oriented upon his versions, but at other times taking on quite a different nature entirely.

The reason for this departure from the originals was in order to achieve independent solo works that could function as such in absence of the voice and text, and also utilize the many facets of the instrument.

In this way, I have tried to arrive at tonally interesting guitar pieces, that seek to capture the essence and clarity of Foster's melodies.
