TOP 500 REVIEWERon 14 September 2010
This is a wonderful bargain collection of early music. Dowland, it has to be said, was not known as a composer of cheerful music, more the reverse, as the title of one song suggests: 'Semper Dowland semper dolens'. So if you're in need of some perky lively songs, look elsewhere. However, if you want to experience a wonderfully rich, and superbly played collection of very authentic sounding early songs and instrumental pieces, look no further.
There are melancholy sounding viol and lute pieces, some lute solos, coupled with some ravishing singing by Catherine King, whose voice floats above the accompaniement with a blackbird's melodic richness. Throughout, instrumental pieces and songs are beautifully balanced, and almost give the impression that you've travelled back in time to hear these dances and tales of love lost, in their authentic setting.
Tired of 'happy clappy'? Give yourself the perfect antidote, and get to time travel for free. Strongly recommended for all this who need shade as well as light in their lives.
