Dowland's Lachrimae is an iconic work that defies the 21st century concept of sound bites or tweets. Slow, rich in harmony with time for contemplation, the sonnet that the original song was set to speaks of the pain of love lost. This beautiful program featuring Montreal's renowned viol consort alternates Lachrimae Pavans with exquisite lute solos under the masterful hands of Nigel North.

Performers: Nigel North, lute; Les Voix humaines Consort of Viols: Mélisande Corriveau, Felix Deak, Margaret Little, Marie-Laurence Primeau, & Susie Napper
