Songs and Sorrowful Sonnets
James Bowman (countertenor)
James Bowman came up to New College in 1960 as a young, inexperienced singer. By the time he left the choir, having been first a Choral Scholar and then a Lay Clerk, he was ready to embark on a professional career. This was entirely due to his time in New College Choir and to the support given to him by the College.
He always hoped that he might be able, sometime, to make a solo recital disc in the Chapel, and he now returns some forty years later to record a highly personal selection of lute songs, accompanied by Dorothy Linell.
Lute Solos - Melancholy Galliard, Tarleton’s Resurrection, Fortune My Foe (John Dowland) and Heart’s Ease (anon.)
Recorded in New College Chapel, Oxford.
Producer: Duncan Saunderson
