5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Sid Nuncius TOP 500 REVIEWER on November 20, 2012
This is a good, if not brilliant, disc of some of Tobias Hume's songs and instrumental music. Hume (among other things) was a soldier and composer in and around the court of JamesVI/I. He is roughly contemporary with Dowland, and the characteristic melancholic style and modal dance music of the time are evident. He was perhaps not a great composer, but he was a good one and produced works (especially for the solo viol) which I enjoy very much and have listened to a lot.

This disc is up against some very tough competition. There are already superlative discs of Hume's solo viol music by both Jordi Savall Hume - Musicall Humors and Suzanne Heinrich Hume: Passion & Division (The First Part Of Ayres) /Heinrich and a wonderful disc of his consort music and songs (sadly, currently available as mp3 download only), also directed by Savall Captain Humes Poeticall Musicke (Savall, Hesperion XX). Here, the music is well played by the ensemble and Nina ben David especially shows herself to be a fine gamba player, but the real soul of Hume somehow doesn't quite seem to come through. Similarly, the singing is good but particularly when compared with Paul Hillier and the late Montserrat Figueras on Savall's disc, is just a little lacking in spirit.

I wouldn't want to put anyone off this disc. It is perfectly well performed and, as always with Alpha, beautifully recorded and presented. In the current absence of the Savall ensemble disc this is very recommendable, but I would urge you also to try Heinrich and Savall's solo discs: in their different ways they bring something really special to this music which Nina ben David and her ensemble don't quite catch.
