Phantasm's Dowland Enters The Chart
Phantasm's beautiful new album has entered the UK Specialist Chart at #3, and the UK Classical Chart at #12.
The recording, featuring lutenist Elizabeth Kenny, of John Dowland's Lachrimae or Seven Tears takes listeners to a journey through sublime sadness, grief, anger and melancholy, mollified by moments of joy and gladness.
Dowland's exceptional melodies combined with Phantasm's luxuriantly rich sound really is a match made in heaven.
