Emma Kirkby (soprano) & Anthony Rooley (lute)

In the lute songs of John Dowland and his contemporaries, we have a marriage of words and music of equal brilliance. Emma Kirkby is acknowledged worldwide as the greatest modern performer of this repertoire, her crystal-clear tones expressing every shifting nuance. This album of lute songs on the theme of mutability is a fascinating recital, containing some of the masterpieces of the period. She is accompanied by her long-time collaborator Anthony Rooley. In the booklet note, Kirkby discourses learnedly on the works and puts them in their historical context.

“A fine recital that adds a few welcome items to the recorded repertory of the lute song, engineered close to perfection” Gramophone Magazine

Born in 1894, Peter Warlock was one of England’s great songwriters – described by Lennox Berkeley as one of the “most colourful talents in English 20th century music”. His output was prolific. In addition he was a distinguished editor and transcriber of a vast amount of early music as well as an author of several books and many articles, editor and music critic. He was very close to Delius – indeed was obsessed with Delius’s music and wrote a book about him, and also assisted Beecham in organising a Delius festival in 1929. He shared a cottage with fellow composer E. J. Moeran. He suffered bouts of depression and sadly he was found dead in his Chelsea flat in December 1930, of gas poisoning.

Gathered here are the original 78rpm recordings from the John Bishop Collection – divided into Orchestral and Chamber on CD1 and vocal items on CD2. John Bishop was one of the leading lights of the Peter Warlock Society, and all tracks have been remastered by Andrew Rose of Pristine Audio.

The booklet contains fascinating and informative notes, rare photographs and original 78rpm matrix numbers with recording dates.

Dowland: In darkness let me dwell


Dowland:

In darkness let me dwell

Lady, if you so spite me

What if I never speed?

Lend your eares to my sorrow good people

I must complain

Behold a wonder here

Weepe you no more, sad fountaines

When Phoebus first did Daphne love

Flow not so fast, ye fountains

Time stands still

Say love if ever thou didst find

Shall I strive with wordes to move?

Love those beames that breede

Stay time awhile thy flying
