Series III

Mr. Dowland’s Midnight

luteDon’t miss superstar lutenist Paul O’Dette as he joins the Consort for this evening at an Elizabethan blues club.  We’ll perform music for lute, soprano, and a consort of viols to display both the dark and light sides of John Dowland.  Consort songs, lute solos and lute songs explore the gamut of human emotion, from Dowland’s famous melancholy to lighthearted dance music.


David Douglass, violin
Ellen Hargis, soprano
Paul O’Dette, lute
Christel Thielmann
Kate Shuldiner, gamba
David Ellis, viola da gamba
Charles Metz, virginal
