Product Notes

2021 release. Melancholy Grace is a poetic collection of keyboard music from the 16th and 17th centuries by composers from Italy, the Netherlands, England and Germany. The French harpsichordist Jean Rondeau has conceived the album as a sombre, but eloquent dialogue between two contrasting voices: melancholy conveyed through chromaticism and melancholy conveyed through the musical expression of tears and weeping. Among the eight 'chromatic' composers are Frescobaldi, Luigi Rossi, Luzzaschi and Sweelinck, while the 'weeping' composers are Dowland, Bull, Gibbons, Valente and Scheidemann (who has an anonymous piece attributed to him). Dowland's Lachrimae Verae (True Tears) closes the program, but in some senses forms the conceptual starting point for the Melancholy Grace.
