Dowland was beautiful Renaissance songman, and Sting is a careful and sensitive interpreter and contemporary songman -- Sting is perfect to bring these beautiful songs into the 21st century and make them personal rather than relic.

It's Really Too Bad ...
Giordano Bruno | Wherever I am, I am. | 10/08/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"... that this fellow Sting has a mediocre voice and absolutely no vocal technique. Listening to him talk about music, and watching the DVD he's made about Robert and Clara Schumann (on which thank heavens he doesn't sing), I've found myself liking the guy and feeling an acute sympathy for his plight: he's a musician without an instrument. What could be more frustrating?

His rendition of these songs by John Dowland is as dismal as can be, but I'm awarding him five full stars for his good intentions and his perspicacity in recognizing the beauty of Dowland's music even though he can't express it. As Bob Dylan once growled, "I pity the poor immigrant who wishes he would have stayed home" in the land of pop. The horrendous blunderthumping of his 'lutenist' on this CD is another story; that chap is abusing a fretboard in public and should be reported to the SPCMI (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Musical Instruments)."
