Celebrated for the crystalline beauty of his voice and the breath-taking daring of his artistry, Iestyn Davies joined us in July 2013 to voyage through the thrilling world of late Tudor and Stuart lute songs and a new work by Nico Muhly. Recorded live at Wigmore Hall, this programme exhibits the poetic eloquence which runs through the work of John Danyel, Thomas Campion and, above all, John Dowland, whose feeling for emotional extremes surges through songs such as Can she excuse my wrongs and Flow my tears.
