*Delia Auer, lute & voice
Songs of John Dowland
Saturday October 1
11 am SLT (Pacific Time)*

What is it about the lute music of John Dowland that makes it the finest of
his generation, right across Europe? Everything - the tunefulness, the range
of forms, the touching harmony and the sheer invention.He said, of himself
(in his Songes of 1597) that "From my childhoode I have euer aymed at... the
ingenuous profession of Musicke".  He influenced a generation and had the
nerve to complain to Elizabeth I (unpolitically) for keeping him playing too
long, perhaps losing himself an appointment as court musician. He's a
fascinating character in the history of music.   Dowland's approximately 100
lute solos that survive employ almost every musical form used in his era,
showing him to be a tireless experimenter.

Join us for an exploration of the Dowland canon for lute & voice with Delia
Auer and learn more about the music and times of John Dowland.
