'Tuneful melancholy in splendid new CD'- Nottingham Post

29 June 2016

The contents of this splendid new Linn CD may seem fairly archaic to the contemporary listener, but John Dowland's intricately crafted creations actually gave birth to a new and innovative musical genre when they first saw the light of day some four centuries ago. The composer's collection of dance music for five bowed instruments and a lute is expertly recreated here by viol consort Phantasm and lutenist Elizabeth Kenny, revelling in the tuneful melancholy which became Dowland's artistic trademark.
