Description: This is meditative and atmospheric music for small ensemble, consisting of fleeting images which subsume developmental processes in striving for the beauty of the moment. This is music which is appealing and soulful without reaching for the spiritual depths of a Pärt or Tavener. The Dowland transcriptions illuminate the originals through instrumental timbre rather than compositional elaboration. NOTE: This was offered (minus the Octet) in our very first catalogue in July of 1997. Original 1997 BMG Ricordi release.
