John Dowland (1563–1626)
for the 450th anniversary of his birth

Vocal workshop with Emma Kirkby on Monday, 19 August from 3.30 to 6.30 pm.

John Dowland is one of England's greatest song composers, to be ranked with Purcell and Britten. He combined elements of broadside ballads, dance music, consort songs and madrigals, creating a new type of English lute songs. His skills as a lute virtuoso were admired by contemporaries throughout Europe. Emma Kirkby and Jakob Lindberg are among the best known and most experienced interpreters of Dowland's music. For this year's 450th anniversary of his birth, they have compiled a programme of songs from all of his published collections.
