Dowland

Listening today to Sting's versions of John Dowland's songs. Strange. The strangest thing is that the music is so beautiful that it even survives the, hm, treatment. It is often very, very bleak music but the crooner style that he imparts it doesn't work for it, at least for me. In spite of which.. i kept playing some, like 'Come Heavy Sleep' again and again. Not necessarily thanks to Sting's rendition, rather maybe in spite of it. Such beautiful, beautiful (if bleak) music.
