Choice Ayres, Songs and Dialogues
John Dowland (1563-1626) and Henry Purcell (1659-1695) were two of the greatest English musicians of any time. Their profound insights into the human soul, with Dowland expressing a deeply melancholic view of life, and Purcell a rich theatrcial extravagance, have provided us with some of the greatest songs and music from an astonishing era. Notably influencing contemporary artists such as Sting (Songs from the Labyrinth) and Michael Nyman and Peter Greenaway (Prospero's Books, The Draughtsman's Contract) we aim to bring the timeless quality of this extraordinary music to life in this concert.
