"This is a selection of some of Dowland's most famous pieces performed in appropriate Renaissance style. Unfortunately, the quality of the performances is mixed. Some pieces are performed very well, others not. The singer on this CD, Catherine King, is inconsistent. In some songs, like "Come again, sweet love..." she is good. In others, her diction and phrasing is suspect. I may also be put off by her apparently strong Scots accent. Choice of tempi in several pieces is poor. A couple of Dowland's most famous songs are represented by instrumental versions, which are nice, but pale compared with the actual songs."
