Sublime singing of English song
English songs are so often overlooked, it's marvellous to hear one of the great singers give them such a delightful airing.
Scholl's remarkable voice is high art, but not intrusively so for the most part. The Dowland lute songs are a particular highlight - knocks Sting into a cocked hat for a start! 'Flow my Tears' is on my favourites list
His diction is also superb - you can hardly tell he's German for the most part.
A great album for everyone who likes mellow or melancholy.
