One of the great Elizabethan masters of the lute also was the period's most celebrated composer for the instrument. Four centuries later, a fellow Englishman-Nigel North-became the leading interpreter of Dowland's beautiful, melancholy creations. This set begins with the Fantasies (or Fancyes ), which match melody with improvisation. Next come the pavans including the most famous of its time, the Lachrimae Pavan . Disc three explores the principal dances of the era: pavans, galliards and almains . Go from My Window; Walsingham , and more dances and songs complete this tribute to the English Orpheus!

That being said - it is very, very, VERY good. Mr. North plays with a real sense of the music in that it doesn't sound like a studied rehearsal. It sounds like a guy playing music that he loves to play and a microphone happens to be set up in the corner of the room. It really is fantastic - I bought it with my interest in classical guitar and it's made me appreciate the genius of Dowland even more.
