Product description

Product Description

Here is John Dowland s masterpiece and one of Jordi Savall s greatest achievements! Published in 1604, Dowland s 'Lachrimae' were composed for 5 viols and lute seven Pavans based on the air 'Flow My Tears' (hence, the additional title 'Seaven Teares Figured in Seaven Passionate Pavans') alternate with Galiards and Alemands, to create the necessary contrast in this unmatched masterpiece. This 1987 recording is still the cornerstone of any Dowland discography: the various classical awards clearly speak in favour of its artistic integrity, and it is now available for the first time in a vivid multichannel remastering.

Review

Re-edited and remastered, this 1987 disc retains the freshness and immediacy characteristic of this ensemble of five viols and lute. The players revel in the cult of melancholy with which Dowland, the 'English Orpheus' of the Elizabethan age, is so deeply associated, thanks in part to the 21 consort pieces entitled Lachrimae. As the composer says on the title page, tears may be shed not only in sorrow "but sometimes in joy and gladness". Full of grief-laden dissonance, the music hardly raises a smile but the brilliance of Hespèrion XX's playing brings cheer. --Fiona Maddocks, The Guardian- 1st December 2013
