Notes & Reviews:

Of all English songwriters, John Dowland has enjoyed the most powerful afterlife, his voice unmistakably present in any version of his songs. The preeminent marriage of music and poetry, the nuanced shades of wit and melancholy and the extraordinary writing for both lute and voice all combine to proclaim Dowland as the father of English song. Countertenor Iestyn Davies has gained international fame through his operatic performances and recordings. Hearing him in this intimate musical setting is a revelation - as is the playing of the young lutenist Thomas Dunford.
