Album information

A superb collection of early music by Dowland, Holborne and others, infused with life by the brilliant Nigel North.

Nigel North's affection for, and understanding of, this music, which he first played over forty years ago, is palpable. This anthology of forty two pieces (seven examples of six musical forms popular in 1610) by lutenist-composers from England, France, Italy and the Low Countries demonstrates true variety as each lutenist-composer uses the instrument in such unique personal ways.

As the greatest English lutenist of his age, John Dowland contributes nearly half of the programme; North's specially commissioned 9 course lute ensures the sound world, although less familiar to us, is one which was well appreciated in Dowland's world.

Working from his own new edition, North's performance corrects several misprints including the first note of the first piece - previously attributed to the wrong string!
