Notes and Editorial Reviews

The liner notes to this astutely-assembled anthology quote Castiglione’s enthusiastic ‘thumbs-up’ to the art of lute song in The Courtier: ‘it addeth to the words such grace and strength, that it is a great wonder.’ Those long familiar with the artistry of Charles Daniels and Nigel North will take performance ‘grace and strength’ as read. They might, however, find Daniels’s pronunciation a great (not to say disconcerting) wonder indeed! Think John McCormack as schooled by a Chaucer-reading elocution teacher from the midlands.
