Lunch Time Recital with Anna Jane Davies, soprano, and Mike Ashley, lute.
Born in London in 1567, Thomas Campion was a composer, poet and physician - a true Renaissance man.
He is now best remembered for the more than 100 songs with lute accompaniment that he wrote, the music he provided for masques and other poetry and literature.
Today's programme covers the range of his lute songs from the gently religious through love songs, songs for masques and some very mischievous songs about naughty lovers! However, all of his songs, whether sacred or profane are always lyrical with delicacy and refinement - which means that sometimes you have to read between the lines!
