This. It's easy to play too.

akak 'Romanza.' You should really be able to find it under any of those names though.

Unfortunately, all the composers I know are Italian, so I can't help you with any Spaniards. Fernando Sor is good, but I can't comment on the difficulty of his work.

Really though, if all you're doing is a play, all you need is 'Romanza.'

Ah great I just listed a huge list of suggestions but then found out that the Golden Age was 15th-17th century


The Romanza, as most pieces I had in mind, is from the Romantic era.
So you shouldn't play those.


You should be looking for spanish lute music.

I highly recomend this little piece:

It's pretty easy and fun to play, I've played it for years.


music from that time doesn't have the typical "spanish" sound most people link to spain.
That developed more in the romantic and modern era and in flamenco.

Doesn't matter. Not a single person in the audience will know.
