Henry & William Lawes - Songs
A Tale out of Anacreon
Oh, that joy so soon should waste
Sweet, stay awhile; why do you rise?
From the heav’ns now I fly
Sweet Echo, sweetest nymph that liv’st unseen
Oh sweet woods, the delight of solitariness
Tavola: In quel gelato core una voce
Loves Sweet Repose: Amidst the myrtles as I walk
No Reprieve: Now, now Lucasia, now make haste
The Angler’s Song: Man’s life is but vain, for ’tis subject to pain
A Pastoral Elegie: Cease you jolly shepherds
Amarillis, by a spring
Slide soft, you silver floods
When shall I see my captive heart?
When man for sin thy judgment feels
Corant for two lutes
A Dreame: I laid me down upon a pillow soft
Alman for two lutes
Corant from The Royall Consort
Oh, my Clarissa, thou cruel fair
Oh, let me still and silent lie
Gather ye rosebuds while ye may
Monsieur Saman his Coranto
'On this engaging tour of the melancholy but colourful world of the Lawes brothers we are conducted by alto Robin Blaze and lutenist Elizabeth Kenny, both at the height of their powers. Blaze soars with ease throughout the alto range while Kenny's sympathetic accompanimnet is a model of its kind' (Early Music Forum of Scotland News)

Cupid once, when weary grown
Oh! That I had but a fine man
O Love, if e’er thou’lt ease a heart
How severe is forgetful old age
Have you seen the bright lily grow?
Woods, rocks and mountains
With endless tears
Come hither, you that love
Come, heavy sleep
The Prince’s Almain
The Marigold (Mark How the Blushful Morn)
I wish no more
No more shall meads be deck’d with flowers
Amarillis, by a spring
Sleep soft, you cold clay cinders
Chloris dead, lamented by Amintor
If grief has any pow'r to kill, Z378
When first Amintas sued for a kiss, Z430
Music for a while, Z583
Farewell, all joys Z368
Beautiful miniatures full of English melancholy.
Purcell’s famous ‘Music for a while’ crowns a century of extraordinary song writing.
Wonderful togetherness of Johannette Zomer and Fred Jacobs.
Johannette Zomer and Fred Jacobs started recording a series of programmes devoted to 17th Century monody for which their research has unveiled many hidden treasures. This recording brings beautiful miniatures, full of English melancholy and humor, including Purcells’s famous ‘Music for a while’. Their previous recordings in this series - ‘Splendore di Roma’, ‘Nuove Musiche’ and ‘l’Esprit Galant’- received great international acclaim.
“There's a brightness to the voice which pinpoints open-eyed wonder...That Zomer knows how to float a line and respond to its musical contours is never in doubt” BBC Music Magazine, June 2010 ***
