Notes & Reviews:

Ownership of the ML Lutebook has been attributed to a number of court musicians since its discovery in 1912, but it was the name 'Margaret' occasionally scrawled throughout the copy that caught the imagination of lutenist Elizabeth Kenny. Kenny connects the manuscript with similar ones belonging to Jane Pickeringe, Margaret Board and Lady Ann Blount, where a remarkable level of virtuosity was associated with private performance by women. It includes works by Dowland, Johnson, Bacheler and others and summons up an exhilarating musical world influenced by the court. Kenny, one of today's finest lutenists, performs this entrancing collection with aplomb and flair.

'A valuable release in terms of providing an opportunity to hear little-known works from a glorious musical era' (International Record Review)

'Kenny's passage-work is exhiliaratingly crisp but most startling here is the bold ornamentation and dramatic dynamics' (The Independent)

'The listener is able to savour the individual qualities of each work while finding additional pleasure in the numerous correspondences and differences that pervade the collection - all the while marvelling not only at Kenny's acute sense of local colour, form and texture but also her considerable technical prowess, the latter especially obvious in the profuse ornamentation and extended divisions throughout' (Gramophone)

'Kenny's performances are technically expert... They are invariably sensitive, with special attention paid to the suppleness of phrasing. She never shortchanges the ornamentation, and incorporates rhetorical pauses in the musical textures of the slower works into her sound to great effect. All the material she plays is treated with an identical attention to detail and shaping, regardless of tempo or weight... Top marks all around' (Fanfare, USA)
