Notes & Reviews:

Over 21/2 of glorious music featuring Barbara Bonney, Anne Sofie von Otter, Nigel Rogers, Andreas Scholl, Göran Söllscher and The Consort of Musicke. The music of the English early-music composer John Dowland has the power to move us even four centuries after its composition. This wide-ranging anthology explores all aspects of the work of England's greatest songwriter and lutenist, performed by leading exponents of his art today. John Dowland is considered the greatest composer of artsongs for lute and during his time his music was quite well-known and fashionable. His most popular pieces are all here in one collection. With new booklet article, Dowland timeline (in English, German and French) and sung texts in English.

BBC Music Magazine
The collection might have sounded like a bit of a hotchpotch were it not for the fact that Dowland's celebrated Lachrimae pavans are woven through the sequence, giving the whole a sense of unity and shape. All in all, it makes a nostalgic and inspiring testimony to Dowland's versatility.
