The First Booke of Songes: His golden locks time hath to silver turned

Stay time awhile thy flying

The lowest trees have tops

Unquiet thoughts

Praise blindness, eyes, for seeing is deceit

My heart and tongue were twins

Beatrice Reichert (alto viol), Frieda Litschauer (tenor viol), Ernst Knava (bass viol)


The Golden Age Singers, Margaret Field-Hyde

The set comprises Bream’s solo Dowland LP (1954) – which was his debüt solo recording, played on lute - and his solo Bach LP (1956), both originally recorded on the Westminster label and justly celebrated at the time. Here they are brought together with a wide selection of Dowland ayres, sung by The Golden Age Singers with Bream’s lute accompaniment. The CD booklet has a newly commissioned note by Tully Potter, a personal friend of Julian Bream, and includes reproductions of the original LP covers, LP labels and photos of the artists.

“…Bream's genius transcends all. Whether it's in the astonishing intensity of Dowland's Melancholy Galliard and Forlorn Hope Fancy or in the finely proportioned sense of pace and drama in Bach's Chaconne, the impression is ultimately of a meeting of equals.” Gramophone Magazine, October 2008
