CD Reviews

Highly Disappointed

"I bought this HDCD based on the fact that it is an HDCD, I like Dowland, and original instrument recordings. The first cut is fantastic. However, each to their own, the next two vocal cuts are not to my tastes. The engineering seems to be heavily "tweaked" to cover for quality of the vocalist and this severely hurts the sound of the excellent instrumentalists who would have been better off without the vocalist, IMHO. I couldn't bear the thought of listening to any more of the album.Too bad, because it had excellent promise."

"i like john dowland songs a lot, and these are the best renditions i have ever heard - i was drawn to the disc because it's dowland being done with strings - too often it's only done with lute which is quite a shame .. also, a lot of the were presented by dowland in a manner so that they could be performed with a variety of instrumental and vocal groups... i think this release gives a nice balance - and the singing here isn't any conservatory boiled counter tenor crap.. it's real live singin'!! by that, i mean the songs are presented in a manner which i feel is true to the body of work, as opposed to being done in some sort of technically perfect but bland, emotionless way - should appeal to fans vander graf generator as much as to fans of purcell. cheers."
Absolutely fantastic

"Dowland at his very finest! Tremendous color, variety and pathos. Not for the faint hearted."
