Notes & Reviews:

This recording fulfills one of Dominique Visse's life ambitions, which dates from the late 1970s and the period during which he studied and worked with Alfred Deller: to record an album of John Dowland's songs. And who better than to record with than celebrated English viol consort Fretwork, who have made a number of historic recordings of Dowland's music? Visse is also joined by Renaud Delaigue in rarely-performed versions of three of the songs.
