Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Elizabethan era was one of victory and change; it was a time of enlightenment and innovation; a time of artistic abundance and celebration; it was the Golden Age. Mister Dowland’s Midnight guides the listener through the music and melancholy that defined the Elizabethan era. From the feastly and flirtatious hours of the early eve, to the dark and lonely hour of midnight, Mister Dowland’s Midnight moves through the different stages of night, invoking thoughts at times seductive, longing, serene or sorrowful, that only emerge between sunset and daybreak. Mister Dowland’s Midnight is the debut album of award-winning lute and voice duo White Sparrow, formed by Debi Wong and Solmund Nystabakk in 2011.
