Album Description
If his music lacks the depth and harmonic richness of a John Dowland, Thomas Campion can still be counted among the early-17th-century masters of the lute song, a genre that Henry de Rouville described as a "miniature for voice and lute, with the accompaniment creating an atmosphere ranging from pastoral calm to unhappy love," and in which one finds "this sad humour, so typically British, which gives one the impression that one's tears would like to dance."
