John Dowland - The Man and the Myth

Sunday 7 August 2005 13:00-14:00 (Radio 3)

John Dowland was one of the greatest musicians of the Elizabethan and Jacobean eras, and information about his life is quite plentiful. Why then, do so many inconsistencies about the man remain? Why is the truth about his life shrouded in mystery? Lucie Skeaping explores the life of the enigmatic composer. Meanwhile, Catherine Bott talks to Dr Helen Hackett about the life and poetry of one of the ladies of the time, Lady Mary Wroth.

Dowland: Flow my tears; Tell me true love; Weep you no more, sad fountains; O sweet words, the delight of solitarienesse; Unquiet Thoughts; I saw my lady weep; Sweet Stay Awhile; Go Crystal Tears

Duration:

1 hour
