This set of Dowland pavanes and other dances has steady calmed my worn-out nerves throughout the course of this month. To be true, it’s been nearly the only newly-acquired LP that I’ve had on deck until late last week. I reckon I’ve found Lachrimae, in particular, uplifting in that reflective, somber, minor key kind of way. I recognize that Renaissance chamber sounds are something a change of pace for GC, but really…Isn’t that why we’re all here in the first place — Looking for new sounds and revelatory surprises? Besides, if I’ve played it that much, seems like the proof is in the pudding…
looks cool. the link isn’t working as it should (there’s a few extra letters (url:) where they shouldn’t be). as always, many thanks!

Thank you very much, Nicholab.
“uplifting in that reflective, somber, minor key kind of way.”
That’s exactly what i was was looking for. Your blog is so great. Thanks for everything. Strength upon the internet party crackers.
Very nice change of pace. Thanks so much!
just a great post-thanks so much yet again
great post. Just a thought if you are in this musical corner of the world maybe keep an eye out for English Chamber Music performed by Frans Bruggen on Reflexe I think. I haven’t been able to find it and the liner notes are great.
thanks from Greece!!!!
Nick, I just now had a chance to listen to this lp. THANK YOU. Exactly what my harried self needed. xo
Hey, beautiful music. Fantastic blog. Thanks for sharing such good music with the world.
Hey man, awesome music, but the link isn’t working…? It just downloads a tiny 5.6k zip file…
Just figured out the dwnld prob. All good now! Thanks again.
Owe this one to Phillip K. Dick, as Dowland was one of his favorites (the novel “Flow my tears, the policeman said” is even named after a Dowland song). Perhaps not your everyday cup of tea, but definitely worth a try, because this is music touched by the gods. Thanks!
I love Dowland and these are particularly lush interpretations. thankyou!
