“Sorrow was there made fair / And passion wise, tears a delightful thing”. The Elizabethan lutenist John Dowland knew that in love, the only thing sweeter than happiness was sorrow. Few living interpreters understand his music more profoundly than Iestyn Davies and he’s devised an evening of poetry, music and drama for voice and lute to explore a composer for whom a single teardrop can hold a universe of emotion.
