Dowland - Lute Songs
Fair, if you expect admiring
I care not for these ladies
It fell on a summer's day
The cypress curtain of the night
Eyes, look no more
Like as the Lute Delights
What delight can they enjoy
Come again, sweet love doth now invite
Go Crystal tears
Can she excuse my wrongs? (First Booke of Songes, 1597)
Awake, sweet love
Shall I sue?
Fine knacks for ladies
Prelude for lute
Lachrimae Pavan, P. 15
What if I never speed?
Me, me, and none but me
Flow not so fast, ye fountains
When Phoebus first did Daphne love
Lady, if you so spite me
Shall I strive with wordes to move?
Tell me, true Love
Semper Dowland Semper Dolens
Lady Laiton's Almain
Captain Candish’s Galliard
Sweet come again
Whether men do laugh
“In most respects this makes an ideal introduction to Dowland's art since it includes many of his most popular songs. Moreover they are sung with wonderful artistry by James Bowman, whose countertenor timbre is ravishing, and who brings sensitivity and intelligence to each song.” Penguin Guide, 2011 edition

When Laura Smiles
Lute solos and songs from Elizabethan England by Philip Rosseter
Gramophone Editor’s Choice artist Matthew Wadsworth presents the first ever recording devoted entirely to Philip Rosseter’s music. A timely tribute to one of the great masters of the lute and English song, When Laura Smiles features twelve of Rosseter’s most beguiling songs, including What then is love but mourning, If she forsake me, Sweet come again as well as the title track. It also includes all of Rosseter’s surviving lute solos, including an epic chromatic fantasy, two weighty pavans and several charming dances. When Laura Smiles continues Matthew’s exploration of music by John Dowland’s contemporaries, following the critically acclaimed Away Delights with soprano Carolyn Sampson (AV 2053) featuring the music of Robert Johnson.
“Lutenist Matthew Wadsworth dazzles with his dexterity” – The Independent Magazine, proclaiming Matthew one of the Rising Stars of 2005
“James Gilchrist's supple, seductive tenor is well-suited to this repertoire: through the subtlest of expressive nuances and inflections, he breathes life into this arcane but charming poetry, most effectively in the sprightly title song, 'When Laura smiles'. Matthew Wadsworth holds centre stage in a selection of lute solos and... plays with emotive musicianship and sensitivity.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2006 ****
