Editorial Reviews

If you had to reduce your recordings of 16th-century instrumental music to only one disc (a horrendous thought!), you'd do very well to keep this one. Rarely is any recording of any repertoire so well conceived, programmed, and performed--and rarely is the music so consistently and incredibly beautiful. The age in which this music was created may have been infinitely different from ours, but we dearly need music with such sincerity and heart these days. Lutenist Julian Bream and his period-instrument ensemble draw us into an enchanting world of beautiful, sometimes heartbreaking melodies and lovely harmonies. Occasionally we hear a lively dance, and a few times we hear Robert Tear's plaintive tenor. But mostly it's the viols, Renaissance flute, cittern, and lute performing some of the finest examples of English Renaissance music we're ever likely to hear. --David Vernier

Elizabethan/Jacobean music is not particularly accessible to the average listener, who generally hears a bowdlerized background music at a Renfest or gets some sense of it through Anglican church harmony. Julian Bream, however, has given the music a face through his recordings of Dowland, Cutting, and others. His playing and arranging for the Consort is historically accurate - he plays with authentic lute thumb-under technique, for example, and the vocalists sing in what is thought to be accurate fashions.

It's an excellent recording, recommended as an introduction to this music.

Like JJ, I have misplaced my original and came to Amazon today specifically to get a replacement. Bream's seemingly effortless runs up and down on the lute are breathtaking, all the more because they are so subdued you nearly have to hold your breath to take them all in. (To me, Julian Bream is the Jerry Garcia of early music.) There are two "early music" recordings I simply cannot live without; this one and "Musick for Severall Friends" by the Newberry Consort, which I also highly recommend.

I have always enjoyed this CD. So much when it became mislaid I have replaced it. I first listened to it over 20 years ago in a shop and first brought it that day.
