Dowland, John - Prelude and Midnight - Lute Video

Two short pieces by John Dowland. A prelude (the only one he wrote that survives) and "Dowland's Midnight". Performed by Daniel Shoskes on a 10 course Renaissance lute.

That was wonderful, Daniel. Never heard that prelude before. Perhaps we should rename it in Dowland's Noon. :wink: Active during the day, reflective during the night.

Ha!! It is strange that it is his only prelude. Probably means he improvised them
