Like all Scholl's recordings, this a great musical treasure. No countertenor or female contralto has the purity, the clean and transparent tone of this living angel. This english renaissance music fits very well the soft and tender voice of Scholl and the flowing arrangements for lute an viola da gamba. There are some instrumental pieces of viol ensemble and lute that enrich this shining sun of sounds. Superb.

Andreas Scholl's singing has been developing year by year.
In this more recent release, his singing style moved more and more towards pure art with no traces of pretenses or technical showmanship, no excessive vibrato or wild coloraturas. He did not even need to target at 'perfect vocal production'.
All these have become secondary stuff when you reach this level of artistry.
The other-wordliness of this album has to be heard to be catched. The accompaniments are scarce, and the voice becomes the sole focus in most vocal tracks (there are about half a dozen instrumental tracks).
There is also a timelessness in the interpretation by Scholl of Dowland's songs. It could well be Joan Baez who's singing; the timbres are not that dissimilar. It is exactly at this point when simplicity matters alone that true greatness surfaces.
Shorn of all flambouyancy, all embellishment, the musicality of the singer dictates the outcome in entirety.
It needs greatness to master simplicity, and Herr Scholl succeeds admirably here.

This is an incredibly clean and well produced recording of music which is less often recorded fare for the countertenor aficionados. Certainly, those expecting dramatic vocal fire and page long melismas passing in and out of the extremes of the range will be sorely disappointed. But, listen for the sake of what this music really is. Presented here is a wide collection of renaissance music in our closest approximation to what we imagine such music sounded like in it's original form. Scholl is inimitable here. Never overreaching, always engaged in the stylistic and mood of the pieces. It's quite an interesting set of pieces both familiar and less well known, and as such should delight renaissance fans as well as countertenor fans who enjoy hearing the simplicity of the instrument in the period before it's heyday of the baroque. So, why only 4 stars? I enjoy Mr. Scholl's musicality quite a bit, but there are several times here that the voice seems somewhat closed off from his most brilliant recordings. As well, this period of music is not my personal favorite. It is however exceptionally well played, carefully mixed (with the exception that the vocal part is a bit TOO present occasionally) and recorded to preserve the intimacy of the setting. All in all, a good collection for fans, and not a bad choice for the casual listener who doesn't know this rep well.

This is a very beautiful disc of Elizabethan songs sung by one of the greatest of countertenors and I ought to love it. I do like it but for me there is something slightly missing beneath the surface.

The programme is wonderful, the musicianship generally excellent from both Scholl and the lute and viol players, and the whole thing sounds extremely lovely. However, I wasn't convinced that Scholl in particular was really engaged with the nuances of feeling in the songs. I normally love Scholl's performances and I realise that this is bordering on sacrilege for many people, but it is the truth, I'm afraid. It may just be that English isn't Scholl's first language, but for whatever reason I am not quite engaged by these performances and far prefer Robin Blaze in this repertoire.

I don't want to put anyone off. It's a personal feeling which a lot of people plainly don't share. You may not share it either: it is lovely music, expertly performed and beautifully recorded. For me, though, it doesn't quite hot the spot.

Perhaps not my style, or maybe I was expecting too much. But on the disappointing side.
