  Archlute   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
In appearance the archlute resembles the Theorbo and the Chitarrone, but differs from them in that its body is smaller and that the first and second courscs are at lute pitch rather than an octave lower.
In the second half of the century the arciliuto was increasingly specified to provide continuo in preference to the tiorba and as an alternative to the violone in violin sonatas and trio sonatas (e.g.
In England the archlute came into prominence as an i alternative to the theorbo at the very end of the 17th century.

In our orchestra, archlute has the same tuning as bass guitar, but the fact of having double strings makes the performance of tremolo easier.
During the seventeenth century musicians got preference to this instrument (better than lute), because its sound was rising thanks to the change of strings by louder ones.
Archlute was employed in solos and also for performing continuous bass.

The 'classic' archlute string lengths are 670mm stopped, and 1400mm diapasons (as found on the Harz instrument below) the stringing being 6 double courses on the fingerboard plus 8 single diapasons.
Some have speculated that its neck has been shortened, but we tend to the opinion that it was built like this originally, intended primarily as a continuo archlute; this seems to be further suggested by the fact that a matching pair turned up together.
It is perhaps a suitable instrument for 18th Century archlute continuo, for Purcell and Handel, for example.

 Lynda Sayce Theorbo FAQs
The archlute was rather a specialized instrument, which should properly be used for continuo mainly in Roman and southern Italian music, mostly from the second half of the 17th century, and the first decade or so of the 18th.
Its vast repertory includes much of the archlute's music too, for example, reprints of Corelli's trio sonatas often specify theorbo rather than the original archlute.
The archlute has gained a rather spurious popularity today, largely because many players begin their careers on the renaissance lute, and they do not need to relearn the fingerboard to play archlute.

 The Norton Anthology of English Literature: Lady Mary Wroth   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Original is at Penshurst (Kent) in the collection of Viscount de L'Isle.
The image represents the poet Mary Wroth (NAEL 1.1422) in a conventional pose and role, holding the archlute, which indicates that she has been educated in the graceful arts (besides instrumental music, singing, dancing, French, fine needlework) that an aristocratic woman was expected to know.
But the massive archlute, emblem of song-making, also points to her Sidney heritage — as niece of the poets Sir Philip Sidney and the Countess of Pembroke, and as daughter of Sir Robert Sidney of Penshurst, also a poet — and to her own distinctly unconventional role as female poet.

 Chitarrone, Theorbo and Archlute, Part 2
I confess I can make little sense of this, since the archlute was tuned only one tone lower than the thorough-bass theorbo, and its first rwo courses were not lowered the octave, Perhaps Crevecoeur was recommending the lesser French theorbo (tuned in D) for continuo work, and Talbot failed to grasp the distinction.
Or, more likely, he has muddled the reason for preferring the theorbo.
