About the album

Amongst the seventeenth-century harpsichord repertoire, the genre of pieces referring to a loss, whether or not the death of a person, takes a special place, and forms the leitmotif of this disc. These introspective pieces, actually being meditations or contemplations, achieve in a uniquely profound way an almost spiritual level. This recording by harpsichordist Ewald Demeyere includes, amongst others, settings of Dowland’s famous Lachrymae by Byrd and the rather unknown Melchior Schildt, a student of Sweelinck.
