Lute songs of John Dowland

Book Cover
Pub. Date:

Considered the greatest lute virtuoso and composer of the English school in the early 17th century, John Dowland (1563--1626) composed over 80 pieces of solo lute music. His peerless skills as an instrumentalist were hailed by poet Richard Barnfield, who referred to Dowland as one "whose heav'nly touch upon the lute doth ravish human sense." As a composer, Dowland displayed a versatility of mode, with works ranging from the lighthearted to the deeply serious, exquisitely melancholic vein in which he excelled. Now, in this unprecedented new compilation, musicians and music lovers can enjoy 43 of Dowland's songs, transcribed for voice and guitar by David Nadal, plus two dances for solo guitar. Listeners will be astounded by the amazingly fresh and modern sound embodied in Dowland's numerous innovations of form and harmony. Comprising all the works in the original First and Second Book of Songs, the music plates have been specially prepared for this edition, including the original solo voice part, complete song texts, a modern transcription for guitar of the original accompaniment, and Dowland's original lute tablature. Attractively bound and presented, this volume is a wonderful opportunity for singers, guitarists, and all music lovers to enjoy these splendid songs -- ravishing echoes of the music played and sung in royal courts, chambers, and music halls four centuries ago.
