The seven Lachrimae Pavans of John Dowland, intensive explorations not only of a single musical theme but also of a single melancholy emotion, are unique, not only in the music of the English Renaissance, but really in the entire history of Western concert music. The reason for their composition is not known, but they are intensely inward works, and a performance that focuses the listener's mind in a contemplative way is required. There's one here in this reading, led by violinist John Holloway, although the recording is quite unusual

John Dowland's Lachrimae Pavans is considered one of the greatest works in the canon of English chamber music. Based upon his famous song "Flow My Teares", the seven pavans - Seaven Teares, as Dowland called them - present an extraordinary exploration of the contrapuntal and harmonic possibilities offered by the theme. Believing the composer offered possibility of performance by five string players without lute, Holloway and company play Dowland's pavans with the instrumentation of four violas and bass violin.

In this remarkable recording, Baroque violinist John Holloway creates a concert programme around the Lachrimae Pavans; threaded between Dowland’s masterpieces are works of other major composers of his era: Henry Purcell, William Lawes, John Jenkins, Thomas Morley and Matthew Locke

In this remarkable recording, baroque violinist John Holloway creates a concert program around the Lachrimae Pavans. Calling some of this music "from the age of Dowland" may be stretching it a little, but it's still a very fine programme of fabulous music, excellently played. The programme is based around Dowland's Seaven Teares, a sequence of pavans based on his song Flow My Tears. John Holloway is a fantastic violinist with a very distinguished discography behind him, which is why I tried this disc. I wasn't disappointed.

John Holloway: 'Pavans and Fantasies from the Age of Dowland'. Song: John Dowland: 'Lachrimae Antiquae'. from Pavans And Fantasies From The Age Of Dowland. An album of solemn, slow-moving counterpoint is admittedly not the most joyous of picks, but John Dowland's journey in his Lachrimae through seven kinds of sadness - "sighing tears," "forced tears" and "true tears" among them - is sublimely melancholy
