In the song “When to her lute Corinna Sings,” Thomas Campion (1567– 1620) presents the listener with an experience of being moved emotionally by every pluck of the lute string and every turn of phrase. I have used this image and the title of the song as the inspiration for the entire recording. In his song, Corinna sings of mourning, passion, pleasure and sorrow, and Campion tells us that the lute strings and the heart strings are united in these emotions.

I have always felt this music to be highly romantic and personal.
When I sing and play the lute, I feel as if I’m whispering something important to the listener. So, I have grouped the pieces on this CD according to Corinna’s expressions with songs and solos that reflect mourning, passion, pleasure and sorrow.

Like singer-songwriters of today, Dowland, Campion, Johnson, Morley and others had a strong connection with the listener and their lyrics brought forth both laughter and tears. Whether the songs express lofty ideas about life and death or are sensual flirtations, they are possessed of an eloquence that can be thought- provoking, spiritual, or erotic.

Thomas Campion was born in London on February 12, 1567. A true
Renaissance man, he was a physician, composer, poet, and law student. He wrote poems, lute songs, and masques, as well as books on music theory and prose. Campion died on March 1, 1620.

John Dowland was born in 1563. He spent time in Paris in service to the ambassador to the French court and also was court musician for Christian IV of Denmark and was court lutenist for James I in England. Dowland was a master lute composer who wrote many lute solos and songs. He also composed for viol and broken consort. He died in London in 1626.
