* Required Fields

Because of the gentle melancholy which underlies the instrument's sound, the viola da gamba was the instrument par excellence for the music which became fashionable in 17th-century England. On this wonderfully recorded and performed record, Velden takes on the viola music of four composers of the period: Christopher Simpson, John Dowland, Tobias Hume, and Matthew Locke.
