Notes and Editorial Reviews

"What distinguishes this Dowland recording is the choice of the two musicians to play the composer’s lute music as discreetly arranged for lute with the support of two versions of Renaissance guitars. Disarmingly, the producer says that there is no evidence that the music was performed on theorbo or gittern in Dowland’s time. No matter. The result is a gentler, less piquant sound than I hear on solo lute versions. Of course, there are now passages as on Sir John Smith: His Almain when the main melody, played on lute, sounds separate from the harmonies played behind it, more so than on a solo lute performance. The sound of the two instruments is close enough so that this is not bothersome. Moreno and Quinteiro mostly play sweetly, Read more although they sound slightly more outgoing in their strong accents on pieces such as Round Battle Galliard. At times, I feel other lutenists—I am thinking of Paul O’Dette and Julian Bream—play finally with more expressiveness, picking out and outlining a rising phrase that ends almost metallically. The instinct of Moreno seems to be to understate those moments, as on Semper Dowland, Semper dolens, while keeping to a stricter version of the tempo. Yet there is much that is lovely in their playing of the lesser-known pieces as well as in the familiar ones."
