Paul O’Dette has been called ‘the clearest case of genius ever to touch his instrument’ (Toronto Globe and Mail). Though perhaps best known for his recitals and recordings of virtuoso solo lute music, he maintains an active international career as a continuo player, and conducts baroque operas and orchestral programs throughout the United States and ...

4.0 out of 5 stars reflective and open July 5, 2001
Format:Audio CD
As an early music fan I have walked with Paul O'Dette through his often faithful and always insightful recordings of John Dowland's complete lute works with great expectation and wonder. Dowland's repertoire was not a small one; and Mr. O'Dette deserves great credit for this massive undertaking.
Volume one is a perfect example of all the things that characterize the rest of recordings in the series...It contains delightful songs (some standouts here are: "Mistris Whittes Thinge"; "A Dream"; and "Mr. Knight's Galliard"). All of songs are played masterfully by Mr. O'Dette. In fact, I would go so far as to say that what we have here are songs written by a master composer and in turn played by a musician who is a master of his craft.
Dowland's music is great for "slipping into." It is the kind of music that is both reflective and open. This is great stuff for thinking, meditating, or for playing in the background during good conversation among friends.
If you are a fan of Early Music, or someone who enjoys lovely, introspective music--this recording is for you. I recommend it highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars To "A music fan". July 10, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
What you are hearing is NOT breathing. It's fret and string noise. It's very noticeable when you have a guitar, lute, or string solo.
This CD is fascinating. It's very well done. When I heard it on my public classical station, I just had to order the real thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5-star music November 8, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I don't get the 4-star ratings. I have the complete 5 volume set, and I'm overjoyed. The range of emotions, etc., etc., and the playing is fantastic. I hear Mr. O'Dette groan or moan or whatever sometimes, but it's a hundred times less disturbing than Glenn Gould's humming. If O'Dette has to utter a few sounds to play this well, so be it. Act now: buy all 5 volumes.

4.0 out of 5 stars moving performance March 30, 2000
Format:Audio CD
One of the early music revival's real stars, Paul O'Dette crafts his true understanding of the emotional potency of Dowland and of the lute into this recording. This one strikes me as the standout of the series. Thankye, sir.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully played by a virtuoso. April 14, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Paul O'Dette is one of the premier lutenists of our age. His efforts and masterful playing bring back this high quality and complex music to life. Renaissance lute music is the foundation for all the music that followed. It can be complex, moody, light, or grave. Paul plays all of it so well.
