13 of the finest settings taken from John Dowland: Ayres for Four Voices, originally transcribed as Volume 6 of Musica Britannica by Edmund Fellowes.

This volume is an introductory selection of these ‘airs’, with accompaniment which may be played on guitar or keyboard as well as lute.


Burst forth my tears

By a fountain where I lay

Can she excuse my wrongs

Come again sweet love doth now invite

Come away, come sweet love

Come heavy sleep

Fine knacks for ladies

Go crystal tears

If my complaints

Now o now I needs must part

Sleep wayward thoughts

Sweet stay awhile

Weep you no more sad fountains
