Performer Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Soprano Theresa Dlouhy and violist Eva Reiter form the ensemble Unidas, which devotes itself to the repertoire of the English Renaissance. Here, they place a special focus on unknown and unpublished works for soprano, lyra viol, and lute. This CD presents compositions by John Dowland, Tobias Hume, Thomas Campian, Thomas Morley, and others who paid homage to the phenomenon of the period: melancholy. According to Robert Burton's The Anatomy of Melancholy, the book of the age, the condition could be particularly alleviated by music!
