Wing'd With Hopes,
"...'Wing'd With Hopes, New Interpretations of Renaissance Songs' is something unique, and should whet the appetites of a whole new audience of music lovers for the 'top 40' tunes of the 1500s and 1600s.
Don't expect to hear lutes or viola da gambas on this CD, but you'll hear fresh and innovative arrangements of Dowland and Campion tunes for voice, string bass, percussion, piano, violin and a bevy of modern instruments played by Jeff Belding, Joe Davoli and Rick Eckberg-- all master musicians. As a bonus, Lise Winne has a voice that's pure and crystal-like in its beauty.
As for the lyrics? They're as apt today as in the 1600s-- the frustrations of unrequited love have never gone out of fashion."
