From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation search John Dowland – buried February 20 ) was an English composer , singer, and lutenist . He is best known today for his melancholy songs such as "Come, heavy sleep" (the basis for Benjamin Britten 's Nocturnal Come again Flow my tears I saw my Lady weepe " and " In darkness let me dwell ", but his instrumental music has undergone a major revival, and has been a source of repertoire for classical guitarists during the twentieth century.
edit Life
Very little is known of Dowland's early life, but it is generally thought he was born in London . Irish historian W. H. Grattan Flood claimed that he was born in Dublin, but no corroborating evidence has ever been found. Dowland went to Paris in where he was in service to the ambassador to the French court. He became a Roman Catholic at this time, which he claimed led to his not being offered a post at Elizabeth I 's Protestant court. However, his conversion was not publicized, and being Catholic did not prevent some other important musicians (such as William Byrd ) from having a court career in England.

Bearbeiten Leben
Von 1579 bis 1584 stand Dowland im Dienst Sir Henry Cobhams , des englischen Gesandten in Paris , und seines Nachfolgers Sir Edward Stafford, 3. Herzog von Buckingham . Nachdem er sich 1594 erfolglos als Nachfolger des k¶niglichen Lautenisten John Johnson beworben hatte, begab er sich auf eine einj¤hrige Auslandsreise und hielt sich zun¤chst am Hof des Herzogs von Braunschweig in Wolfenb¼ttel und des Landgrafen Moritz von Hessen in Kassel auf. AnschlieŸend ging er nach Italien und erreichte Florenz . Als er hier vom Plan einer Gruppe englischer Exilanten erfuhr, ein Attentat auf K¶nigin Elisabeth I. zu begehen, reiste er best¼rzt nach N¼rnberg zur¼ck. Ende 1596 oder anfangs 1597 kehrte er nach London zur¼ck, wiederum in der Hoffnung, als Hoflautenist angestellt zu werden. Doch seine Erwartungen zerschlugen sich abermals, da sein Freund und G¶nner Henry Noel verstarb, kurz nachdem er Dowland in einem Brief um seine R¼ckkehr nach England gebeten hatte.

    John Dowland, of English or possibly Irish origin, was born in 1563, probably in London. He was a lutenist of distinction but failed, allegedly because he was a Catholic, to win a position in the royal service, seeking his fortune abroad at Kassel and later, in 1598, at the court of Christian IV of Denmark. He was forced by debt to return to England in 1606 and eventually won appointment as one of the King's Lutes in 1612. He performed during the funeral ceremonies of King James I and himself died the following year. Dowland was the composer, in particular, of one of the best known songs of the period, Flow my teares, music much imitated, epitomising the fashionable humour of the day, melancholy. Dowland himself provided an apt pun on his own name - Dowland, semper dolens (Dowland, always grieving) - although he had a reputation as a cheerful man, yet professionally embittered by his long failure to find employment at court. Vocal Music Dowland was above all the composer of lute-songs, publishing his first collection of airs in 1597, followed by a second in 1600 and a third in 1603. He left over eighty secular songs and these include Come again: sweet love doth now endite, Fine knacks for ladies and Flow my teares, among many others of moving intensity.

    We know nothing of john dowland s early life beyond the statements, made in his publications, that he was born in 1563 and studied the ingenuous profession
    John Dowland
    While he was in London, Dowland published his first collection of music, The First Booke of Songes or Ayres of Foure Partes with Tableture for the Lute A Pilgrimes Solace, also show that he had become aware of the new declamatory style of his Italian contemporaries. Dowland seems to have remained in England at least until February 1598, when the Landgrave of Hesse invited him to return to Kassel, though by the following November he had taken up a post at the Danish court. He remained there until 1606, apart from a year spent in England in 1603-04, when he took the opportunity to publish Lachrimae, his only collection of consort music. Lachrimae also broke new ground in that it was the only set of five-part dance music to use the table layout, the only one to be equipped with a tablature lute part, and the only one to feature a variation suite of seven pavans. These dances are linked by the four-note descending motif heard at the beginning of Lachrimae Antiquae and by a subtle web of thematic and harmonic inter-relationships. Dowland dedicated Lachrimae to the queen, Anne of Denmark, stating that the collection was begun in her native land and finished in England; to some extent it represents the practice and repertory of expatriate Englishmen at the Danish court, including the composers

    language="en"; español français
    B ... Z JOHN DOWLAND (1563-1626).During his lifetime John Dowland was one of the few English composers whose fame spread throughout Europe . Born in 1563 John Dowland was almost exactly contemporary with Sweelinck and Shakespeare. Of his origins and early beginnings as a musician nothing is known. As an adoloscent he was 'servant' to the ambassadors of England to the court of France, spending over four years in Paris between 1580 and 1586. During this stay - which must have greatly contributed to raising his social status and orienting his musical evolution - Dowland was converted to Catholicism under the influence of the English emigrants. Back in England, he got married and in 1588 was admitted to his degree of Bachelor of Music from Christ Church, Oxford, on the same day as Thomas Morley. His increasing renown as composer and performer, however, did not win him Elizabeth's confidence; so in 1594, after vainly seeking a post as court lutenist, he left for a long journey which was to take him to Rome with the intention of taking lessons with the famed Luca Marenzio. The following year he boasted the title of Bacheler of Musick in both the Vniuersities, i.e. , Oxford and Cambridge, the first to have delivered this degree right from the late XVth century ; he also published his first book of Ayres for voice and lute, thus initiating a genre in which England was to excell for a quarter of a century. Six editions in succession testify to the renown then enjoyed by the composer.

    16. John Dowland Exquisitely Sorrowful Music
    Examination of the composer and the musical mood in Elizbethan England.
    John Dowland: Exquisitely sorrowful music 1563-1626
    Let's hope Bobby McFerrin never has a chance to hop into a time machine and zip back 400 years to cheer up John Dowland. ``Don't worry, be happy'' is the last thing we'd want Dowland to hear. If he'd followed that advice, the world would have been deprived of some exquisitely sorrowful music. However sad Dowland's most famous music may be, it's moving rather than depressing. And Dowland certainly didn't limit himself to pieces in a dolorous mood. But melancholy was the mode in Elizabethan England, and Dowland was the most stylish composer of his time. Dowland followed a dual career as a composer and lutenist. A lutenist is a player of the lute, a resonant pear-shaped instrument having several pairs of gut strings; it's played like a guitar. The lute was to English music around the year 1600 what the guitar is to popular music today. And in Dowland's time, there was hardly any difference between popular and classical instrumental music. The young Dowland converted to Catholicism during a visit to Paris in 1580. He later claimed that this was the politically incorrect move that excluded him from employment at the Protestant court of Elizabeth I. (Remember that Elizabeth's father, Henry VIII, resented incursions on his earthly authority from the Vatican and broke with the Catholic Church, establishing the Church ofEngland.)

      • Genre: Early Hometown: London
      John Dowland (1563 - 1626) might properly be considered the first singer/songwriter to the stars, as the 16th century English composer, singer, and lutenist was idolized in the courts of Europe for melancholy songs like "Come, heavy sleep" (the basis for Benjamin Britten's Nocturnal), "Flow my tears," and "I saw my Lady weepe." He even got a gig at the funeral of James I. Today, you're less likely to encounter him through a toe-tapping vocal number like "In darknesse let mee dwell" than you are through his instrumental music, which has undergone a major revival as concert repertoire for classical guitarists.
