A morning after a romantic night of passion. Half-empty glasses on the table. A few rays of sunlight peek through the white curtains and gradually bathe the room in a golden light. Drowsy, the young woman writhes, stretches her arms, searches for the dress that still lies on the floor. Day approaches. Parting is in the air. But her sweetheart will not let her go yet. John Dowland carries us off to this ambience with his song Sweete, stay awhile.  “Sweete stay a while, why will you rise?” asks the first line, “The day breakes not, it is my heart, / To thinke that you and I must part.” It is wonderful how the melody caresses the tender words. And how the “blisseful kisses” in the second verse unleash a short round of musical hugging and kissing. Alas! What a yearning and sighing! The song with its “blisseful kisses” – which give the album its title – is the program’s heart. Because many of John Dowland’s pieces have to do with love in all its facets between pleasure and sorrow. This is also reflected in the recording. From the four Books of Songs – which appeared between 1597 and 1612 – Hanna Thyssen and Susanne Peuker selected fifteen of Dowland’s most beautiful songs, weaving them together with several lute pieces into an atmospheric Dowland homage. It documents his great compositional mastery, and his instinct for unpretentious melodies and subtle text settings. In this way, Dowland touches the listener’s heart. It is no wonder that he was venerated already by his contemporaries as the “English Orpheus,” and that his music has found many admirers to the present day. In recent years the music of the Renaissance bard has experienced a renaissance even outside the Early Music scene – not least because of the pop singer Sting, who recorded a CD of Dowland’s songs in 2006.
