Around 1600, John Dowland was one of Europe’s best-known and most influential composers. He spent years in France, Germany, Italy and Denmark, and everywhere he went he became acquainted with local composers. His music continued to be valued, arranged and disseminated throughout Europe even a quarter of a century after his death.
