Notes & Reviews:

England in the 17th century boasted not only a musically sophisticated aristocracy but also a middle-class who were well acquainted with both poetry and music. English composers capitalized on this knowledge, exploring ways to meld the messages of text and sound in ways that heightened sensory impact. Elizabethan and Jacobean England boasted the finest musicians in the western world. This disc celebrates the titans John Dowland and Henry Purcell, who stand as colossal bookends at opposite ends of the 17th century. Each of these composers' songs is a little jewel, expressed succinctly, with elegance, beauty and refinement. A versatile interpreter of song, Wyoming native Jama Jandrokovic is equally at home in early music, new music, lieder and Broadway. She has charmed audiences and critics alike with her clear, pure soprano voice and engaging stage presence.
