Wrote the following book of cittern tablature:
Holborne, Antony. THE CITTHARN SCHOOLE BY ANTONY HOLBORNE [...]. Peter Short: London 1597. (Brown 15976) facsimile
There are also many pieces for solo lute (and bandora), most of which exist in English manuscripts; it is not certain if Holborne played the lute himself however.
See the two modern editions of the surviving solo lute and bandora works:
Masakata Kanazawa Harvard music publications,
Anthony Holborne, Music for Lute and Bandora Vols. I-II. ed. Rainer aus dem Spring (Lute Society Editions, 2009/12).
