Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Nigel North's Dowland Lute Edition has gained him a garland of critical accolades: 'A
collector's item' (The Times on Vol 1, 8.557586), 'a remarkable performance of wonderful
music' (American Record Guide on Vol 2, 8.557862), 'North s sweet-toned playing is both
unfailingly musical and highly imaginative' (Gramophone on Vol 3, 8.570449), 'Nigel
North's Dowland cycle sets a new benchmark' (5 STARS, BBC Music Magazine). On this
fourth and final volume, North presents a selection of dances and songs by the composer
celebrated as the 'English Orpheus'.

Review

The final volume of Nigel North's John Dowland lute music cycle offers some of this singular composer's more familiar works such as Walsingham, Go from my window, and Lord Willoughby's welcome home. It also includes North's own editions of Dowland songs arranged for solo lute. In general, North favors slower tempos than Paul O'Dette (Harmonia Mundi) and is not averse to savoring a felicitous cadence or melodic turn of phrase, as you hear in the little Galliard P. 35. While O'Dette's quicker and suppler readings of the Queen Elizabeth and Sir John Souch Galliards better emphasize the music's dance origins and rich contrapuntal ideas, North sometimes surpasses O'Dette so far as coloristic resources. A good example of this is Awake, sweet love, where North applies varied vibratos to the melodic line. The warm ambience and detailed presence of Naxos' engineering makes an immediate and lasting impact. If you already own Volumes 1 through 3, chances are you've already bought this release. If not, then why not? -- ClassicsToday.com, Jed Distler, December 2009

We've had several sets of John Dowland's lute music, but the latest may well be the best. Nigel North, who broke ground several decades ago in accompanying the first version of the complete songs, has sterling credentials. This fourth and final volume of the lute music crowns his new solo set. Most of the pieces this time around are catchy dance music, including some of the Renaissance master's greatest hits - "The Frog Galliard," "Loth to Depart" and North's own transcription of "Come Again, Sweet Love." The lute's plucked sound is less resonant than a guitar's, but North makes it sweet and appealing. He's a virtuoso, but his rhythmic sense is bound to set toes to tapping. If you don't know this music, start here and work the series backward. If you already love it, grab up all four volumes. -- GuideLiv, Lawson Taitte, April 25, 2009

Format: MP3 Music Verified Purchase
I downloaded this to my phone using the Android app, and I really enjoy it. Nigel North is a great lutenist, and to finally have this collection of recordings is a blessing. As a guitarist I have a deep appreciation for this somewhat understated art form. So many brilliant pieces written for the various instruments in the lute family are rarely accessed in our modern electric music age. $5.99 was an excellent investment for this great example of early music.
