In a meticulously voiced recital that moves between court, theatre and tavern, from music of great
sophistication to music of extraordinary bluntness, Lindberg conjures an age that was as perilous as
it was rich in musical invention...........The technical challenges of Dowland's divisions (Battle Galliard)
and Daniel Bacheler's exquisite variations (La jeune fillette) are skilfully handled and sweetly turned.
Lindberg's selection of anonymous airs is of particular interest, from the bleak and spare A Scottish Tune
to the seductive Draw Near to Me and Love Me.
