The Meaning of a Master

Translation:

This Master (Johann Rudenius) highly recommended his pupils such an inculpable, pure delight ( a book of lute music of famous composers) because through it a mind made tired and low-spirited by serious work could be raised and brought back to sanity, and the spirit of life could be reactivated through the playing of strings in harmony. It is well known in all art and science that it can be misused, but bad playing in this noble art cannot harm in any way either the glory or the perfection of it.
