This collection of songs is based on the theme of the courting of Daphne of Apollo and Anthony Rooley has suggested that it can be regarded as the first song-cycle in England.
This captivating recording was produced by Sting.
“[Hawnt's] diction is amazingly clear, aided by immaculate sound quality, and her understanding and interpretation of texts are excellent throughout… John Danyel was one of [Dowland's] most interesting and talented contemporaries and his musical love letters to Mistress Anne Greene are well worth listening to.”
