John Dowland: First Booke Of Songes Or Ayres
Who Ever Thinks Or Hopes of Love for Love
My Thoughts Are Wing’d With Hopes
If My Complaints Could Passions Move
Can She Excuse My Wrongs with Virtue’s Cloak?
Now, Oh Now I Needs Must Part
Dear, If You Change, I’ll Never Choose Again
Burst Forth, My Tears
Go Crystal Tears
Think’st thou then by thy feigning
Come Away, Come Sweet Love
Rest A While, You Cruel Cares
Sleep, Wayward Thoughts
All Ye Whom Love or Fortune Hath Betray’d
Wilt Thou Unkind Thus Reave Me of My Heart?
Would My Conceit that First Enforc’d My Woe
Come Again, Sweet Love Doth Now Invite
His Golden Locks Time Hath to Silver Turned
Awake, Sweet Love, Thou Art Return’d
Come, Heavy Sleep
Away With These Self-Loving Lads
Grace Davidson, David Miller
Following her debut release of Baroque works by Vivaldi and Handel earlier
this year, Grace Davidson returns to disc on Signum with an intimate disc of
Dowland’s first book of lute songs, accompanied by David Miller.
Blending melancholy with wit in his writing for both lute and voice, John Dowland’s songs have continued to enchant audiences and singers for nearly 400 years.
The ‘First Booke’ includes some of Dowland’s less well-known works and was recorded in the sensitive acoustic of Ascot Priory in Berkshire, UK.
