Melancholy was downright celebrated in Elizabethan England as food and art form and permeated almost all genres. The music presented here by composers such as Ford, Jenkins and Ferrabosco is not necessarily melancholic in expressive or even depressive sense, but can also be satisfied by irrepressible joie de vivre. With the possibilities of her instrument as anyone else familiar, it is possible to Gambistinnen Hille Perl and Friederike Heumann, to transform the bittersweet melancholy in pure, melodious beauty.
