Alfred Deller (countertenor) & Robert Spencer (lute)
The Consort of Six
Another timely reissue for his centenary, Alfred Deller's Dowland has become part of our history. The most legendary of English countertenors distilled the very essence of the melancholy of the 17th century English song in general and of the composer of the 'Lachrimae' in particular. This title was released for the first time in 1978.
“Twenty songs, recorded late in Deller's career when his voice had lost a certain bloom but little of its fascination” BBC Music Magazine, October 2012 ***

“Scholl‘s voice is pure and beautiful in sound, his taste exquisite, his pitch and diction immaculate. It is inadequate to compare Andreas Scholl to many other countertenors now working, even the fi nest of them. Instead one is put in mind of legendary past masters.” Fanfare
