"*** One can hardly believe that this recital was recorded in 1958, so fresh and vivid is the sound. Russell Oberlin's very special counter-tenor timbre is beautifully caught. I saw my lady weep is most moving, while Flow my tears soars; but most touching of all is the closing In darkness let me dwell. Joseph Iadone contributes two of Dowland's most famous instrumental pieces."
