Musing For the Wild consists of vocal works by leading English composers from the Elizabethan and the Baroque eras. Through John Dowland’s (1563-1626) radical for their time lute songs, Thomas Campion’s (1567-1620) epigraphic ayres and Francis Pilkington’s (1565-1638) chorus ayres style and lute-songs, Renaissance English vocal tradition is transposed into the full of fertile Italian and French Baroque style influences of Henry Purcell (1659-1695). In parallel, organic pieces by Robert Johnson (1583-1633) complement the music route and nostalgically bring to the fore the acoustic memory of one of the most creative periods of European culture.
