about

Our third release features 16th century English songs with poetry attributed to Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford, and lute solos with dedications bearing his name. Rounding out the collection are several lute solos and duets from the famous Folger lute manuscript, and familiar favorites sure to please lovers of Shakespeare, Dowland, and all things Elizabethan, including Greensleeves and The Willow Song. Selected by Cleveland classical radio station WCLV as a Choice CD.

Meic Goodyear of Lute News (UK) says:
"...Mignarda make the song ['O mistress mine'] wistful and reflective...turning a piece so familiar it's almost hackwork into something of heart-stopping beauty....Stewart...is simply astonishing. Conversational, dramatic, or elegiac as the lyrics dictate, never out of balance with her accompanist, she decorates and varies as naturally as a sean nos singer, with perfect diction and a real concern to communicate the meaning of the words."
