Very nicely played Erik. I'm a fan of Dowland's music so this is one I'll have to add to my list.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

What a rare treat to get another sampling of your playing, Erik! :casque:

You've really captured Mr. Dowland's late night "melancholy" with your tempo and tone.

Rub it in, Tarbaby! I am no Thelonious Monk or Dexter Gordon. As much as I like both musicians, I prefer Dowland. :wink:

Nice piece!. I think Dowland is great in displaying his full art of composing not only in his major production, but also in these short, delicious little pieces. :bravo: :casque:
