Dowland’s Denmark - Music from the court of Christian IV (1588-1648)
Church of St Michael the Archangel, Framlingham, Suffolk
At the beginning of the 17th Century, John Dowland returned to the Court of Christian IV of Denmark, bringing with him an Irish harpist and a dancing master. World renowned for its musical accomplishments, Copenhagen was a lodestone for composers and virtuosi across Europe.
Dowland’s Denmark introduces the music of this grand court encountered through the British and Irish musicians, the experience of being a travelling musician and the longing for the sounds of home.
