Emma Kirkby

An Elizabethan Songbook (CD)

This is a lovely recital celebrating the diversity of Elizabethan song. Accompanied by her husband Anthony Rooley on lute, Kirkby especially turns her attention to selections which display the period's numerous variety of takes on the subject of secular love. Now over 30 years old, this recital still sounds as vital and sincere as ever.
