Was John Dowland, often considered the first great English composer, actually Irish? This question is the starting point for ‘Dowland in Dublin,’ the new Atma release featuring American tenor Michael Slattery and Montreal’s La Nef. The Celtic-flavored disc has garnered much praise since its release earlier this year.
