COFFEE BREAK | John Dowland Gets the Irish Treatment

By Michael Vincent on March 17, 2015

In honour of St. Patricks Day, check out this gorgeous Celtic remix of a melancholy song Behold a Wonder Here by John Dowland. It is arranged for Irish flute, recorder, fiddle, lute, cittern, shruti-box, and cello by Michael Slattery and members of La Nef. Dowland’s 400 year-old tune has never sounded so good.

For those interested, La Nef and American tenor Michael Slattery, will be making their Toronto debut on March 27 and 28 at 8:00 PM at Trinity-St. Paul’s Centre, Jeanne Lamon Hall. For tickets and information, call the box office at (416) 964-6337 or visit torontoconsort.org. Sylvain Bergeron, Artistic Director of La Nef, will give a pre-concert talk on both evenings, free with concert admission.
