Product description

Amazon.co.uk

Trust the indefatigable Jordi Savall to spot an intriguing 2002 anniversary--400 years since the birth of the English composer William Lawes, one of Charles I's most prized musicians. Lawes fought for his king in the English Civil War, and was killed during the struggle for the city of Chester. How Lawes' music must have chimed in with the lavish surroundings of Charles' court, being elaborate and complex, rich and passionate, yet poised and dignified. David Pinto's intriguing sleeve-note on these three- and-four-movement sets traces the influences--Italian madrigals and popular songs of Lawes' day, sacred music written as much as a century earlier, and most haunting of all, material that links to the turbulent times he witnessed. The last of the Consort Sets à 6 breathes the agonies so many experienced and in the final Aire, suggests the call to arms. Too often repertoire such as this is relegated to being background music. But these are glorious inspirations to immerse oneself in--which also bring history alive. As ever, Savall and his players offer consummate musicianship, the lines wondrously spun and interwoven, the balance and weight of sound immaculate. A vivid recording, too. --Andrew Green
