Henry Lawes: Songs of an English Cavalier

Henry Lawes lived through the troubled times of 17th-century England. He was acknowledged in his day as one of the finest composers for the voice. With his extended vocal ranges, his expressive melodies, his vibrant dissonances and the high poetic quality of his texts, Lawes is a subtle painter of the melancholy of his age.

“virtuosity, inner energy and dramatic flair.” Washington Post
