    beautiful..inspired song choice..that's the real "songbook"!!

    thought to be dowlands own lyric to the melody-

    Flow, my tears, fall from your springs!
    Exiled for ever, let me mourn;
    Where night's black bird her sad infamy sings,
    There let me live forlorn.

    Down vain lights, shine you no more!
    No nights are dark enough for those
    That in despair their last fortunes deplore.
    Light doth but shame disclose.

    Never may my woes be relieved,
    Since pity is fled;
    And tears and sighs and groans my weary days, my weary days
    Of all joys have deprived.

    From the highest spire of contentment
    My fortune is thrown;
    And fear and grief and pain for my deserts, for my deserts
    Are my hopes, since hope is gone.

    Hark! you shadows that in darkness dwell,
    Learn to contemn light
    Happy, happy they that in hell
    Feel not the world's despite.

    cheers

    ps- our fellow forum member rob macKillop may very well have an actual lute version recorded


    hah!! verily he does

    3 very different" versiones,"one with violin,one with lute and one with electric guitar.
    Did you notice that on the second repetition of Each of the 3 different themes,Rob Mc Killop was really
    improvising around ?

    I was curious to have the MacKillop reaction concerning the Christian Miller and my own version of this tune ,but..nothing.
    Maybe he is too busy actually.

    In re my previous post: I would not have been so flippant had I read the original post, my apologies. This is truly magnificent music, composed, as I noted, by one of my ancestors. Would that I could achieve his degree of grace in music or understanding of the human condition.

    It is good to see and hear his music here, appalling that the state of the world has made it necessary.

    My sympathy and condolence to all those directly affected.

    Just long-standing family "legend" really. Other than historical coincidences of time, place, and religion I have not been able to find any hard evidence; but I am happy to keep the legend alive while I keep looking!

    Cheers

    Excellent, what an original tribute to John Dowland! Congratulations!
    In fact I did my last "studies work" on this song ! I analysed every part of it, in all aspects (history, notation, theory). I had a 16/20 from 1 teacher, and 12/20 from the other arf
