Info for Dowland: First Booke of Songesor Ayres

Following her debut release of Baroque works by Vivaldi and Handel earlier this year, Grace Davidson returns to Signum with an intimate album of Dowland’s first book of lute songs, accompanied by David Miller. Blending melancholy with wit in his writing for both lute and voice, John Dowland’s songs have continued to enchant audiences and singers for nearly 400 years. The ‘First Booke’ includes some of Dowland’s less well-known works, and was recorded in the sensitive acoustic of Ascot Priory in Berkshire, UK. “Grace Davidson has one of the most beautiful and pure soprano voices on earth.” (Eric Whitacre, composer) “Grace Davidson sings with gorgeous purity and warmth and hits some extraordinarily ethereal high notes.” (Classic FM)
