Better are the moments when the set is dark and the camera focuses on Sting's face. You enter the special torment of these ballads, still unsurpassed for beauty among songs in the English language.

    An Interesting Musical Exploration

    This is definitely a departure from the typical pop music that made Sting famous. The consort songs of John Dowland, an early seventeenth century composer, have a melancholy quality typical of music from that time period and the Early Modern English makes for fascinating lyrics.

    The album features Sting and Edin Karamazov on the lute, in a live recording from their performance at St. Luke's Church in London. The quality of the recording is excellent with the acoustic properties of the lute and Sting's voice bringing out the haunting emotionality of songs such as "Flow My Tears" and "In Darkness Let Me Dwell." The album does feature one of Sting's hit pop songs played on the lute, in an interesting and enjoyable twist for long-time fans.

    The DVD gives a brief look at the history of Dowland's life and music, as well as scenes that are reminiscent of music videos where Sting performs some of the songs in truly beautiful settings and a behind the scenes look at the rehearsal at St. Luke's Church. This is an interesting musical exploration and very enjoyable if you have an open-mind to hear something very different from a mainstream artist.
