Dowland's Foundry

A Mortal Muse

John Danyel's 'Songs to Anne Greene'

A Mortal Muse

In 1606, English composer and lutenist John Danyel dedicated his only songbook to a wildly unconventional muse – his brilliant young student. Songs to Anne Greene are a treasure of Jacobean art, telling an unorthodox love story with uncommon brilliance, humanity, and wry wit.

Lute-song specialists Dowland's Foundry will create a colourful and dramatic performance in the stunning setting of Magdalen College, interlacing words by Ovid, Samuel Daniel and William Shakespeare with music by Danyel, John Dowland and William Byrd.
