Did this recording last week of the G Minor Fantasia by John Dowland, beautiful piece. No editing, just some reverb added. Hope you enjoy!

That's a very fine rendering of this one. So often is it played at quite a rushed speed, and your tempo allows the contrapuntal writing to be made more clear.

This is one of my favourite Dowland pieces and to me you have captured its mystique and beauty perfectly. Well done.
