The English composer John Dowland (1562-1626), left behind some of the most beautiful and distinguished love songs in the history of music. This magnificent collection of lute songs is performed here by legendary countertenor Russell Oberlin, accompanied in the true Elizabethan performance style by Lutenist Joseph Iadone. An unrivaled performance of Dowland by one of the greatest voices of thE 20th century. No classical CD collection will be complete without this disc!
"...a superb disc. Oberlin's voice is like a fine wine: once tried, nothing else seems quite the same." - The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs
