Notes and Editorial Reviews

* The programme, entitled 'Not Just Dowland' sets the father of English song alongside his contemporary Robert Johnson, who notably composed for the plays of Shakespeare, and the Italians Monteverdi, Grandi, Piccinini, Caccini and Merula. There are also instrumental items by Johnson, Ferrabosco, Rosseter and Kabsberger. "Everything was so perfect, the evening seemed to pass in a flash," was The Independent's verdict on the Wigmore Hall recital in December 2008 by soprano Carolyn Sampson and lutenist Matthew Wadsworth. "The soprano Carolyn Sampson is blessed with a lovely voice ...and the lutenist Matthew Wadsworth ... really is a class apart among exponents of this increasingly popular musical instrument."
