Dowland's Complete Lachrimae in Oxford

Wednesday, 4 May 2016 - 8:00pm

In conjunction with a Study Day on John Dowland to mark the acquisition by Magdalen College of one of the handful of extant copies of the original print of Lachrimae (and other songbooks), Magdalen College has invited its former consort-in-residence (2010-2015) to perform Dowland’s complete collection entitled Lachrimae or Seven Tears at the Holywell Music Room on 4 May at 8.00 together with lutenist Elizabeth Kenny. For lovers of English song and consort music, the programme embraces one of the most tuneful hours of music ever composed.
