Lindberg has all the scholarly and performance skills to excel at the highest level in this notoriously difficult but rewarding music….all is apparent ease and fluency, with perfect tone….This recording is recommended to all.
Classical Guitar Magazine

Lindberg's playing is faultless and his use of ornamentation is a real delight. The gut bass strings on his lute lend an extra measure of authenticity to his interpretations, but his playing is never pedantic, or dull. Indeed I had the feeling that Dowland might have played the music like this himself - who knows?…This disc would be an excellent choice for someone wanting a single disc of Dowland's music…Diana Poulton would surely be heartened to know that her life's work was continuing to bear such fruit as this.

Selected lute music by John Dowland. This CD was released in memoriam Diana Poulton (1903-1995). She dedicated much of her life to gaining knowledge and understanding of this great English composer. With this selection Jakob Lindberg wishes to express his gratitude for all that Diana Poulton has done for the lute and for our understanding of Dowland's music. The programme comprises pieces that she was particularly fond of. It opens with The Frog Galliard, well-known in the song version Now, O now I needs must part, and ends with Farewell and Tarleton's Riserrectione.
