Album information

Lutenist Nigel North teams up with countertenor Michael Chance to record Campion's songs with traditional lute accomaniment. 

Thomas Campion (1567-1620) holds a unique place in the history of Elizabethan and Jacobean musical culture as a great poet who was also a consummate musician. His English Ayres epitomise the sound of Shakespeare's England. Although his music is too often overshadowed by that of his contemporary John Dowland, Campion's delightful Ayres explore a wide emotional range and vary in scale from a single voice with lute.

Michael Chance and Nigel North are joined by The English Ayre (Rachel Elliott, soprano; Mark Padmore, tenor; Peter Harvey, baritone) and Concordia (Mark Levy, Alison McGilvray, Joanna Levine, viols).
