Greensleeves Jeffrey Thompson (tenor) and Daniel Zapico (theorbo)

An excerpt from the cd An Englishman’s Ballad.

Jeffrey Thompson’s first CD for Flora is all about a life’s journey through time, emotions, and memories.

The tenor gives us a fantastic spectrum of his vocal and dramatic capacities, painting with extreme variety the depths of human feelings or on the contrary lightness of pure joy and folly… as we can find only in English baroque poetry, on music by John Blow, Jeremiah Clarke, Nicholas Lanier and Henry Purcell (such as the famous Here, let my Life).

Accompanied by his beloved continuo players Daniel Zapico on the baroque guitar and theorbo, and Philippe Pierlot on the viola da gamba, a must-have for your dark winter eve’s.
