Drop Not, Mine Eyes
Based around a triptych of songs written by John Danyel in honour of a mourning widow, this programme charts the emotional range of the Elizabethan lute song, or Aire, as composed by English lutenists such as John Dowland, Thomas Campion and Thomas Ford. It ends with an exploration of how the lute could be used in later works during the Stuart period, chiefly by Henry Purcell.
