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.
