Fred Jacobs (lute) plays early seventeenth-century music by John Dowland and his contemporaries, including Dowland’s famous Lachrimae pavan; an expressive pavan by Robert Johnson, who wrote music for Shakespeare’s late plays; a virtuoso suite by the eccentric German-Italian lutenist Johann Hieronymous Kapsberger, and dances by the French composers Robert Ballard, Jacques Gaultier and René Mesangeau – the last from a recently discovered autograph manuscript.
