Ακούμε ένα αναγεννησιακό καλοκαιρινό τραγούδι του Thomas Campion. Ποιητής, συνθέτης, λαουτίστας, γιατρός, νομομαθής, φιλόλογος, ο TC ήταν ένας αληθινός “Renaissance man”.
Τραγουδάει ο Robert Spencer, με τη συνοδεία του κορυφαίαου κιθαρίστα – λαουτίστα Julian Bream.

We hear a Renaissance summer song by Thomas Campion.
Poet, composer, lautist, doctor, jurist, philologist, doctor … TC was a true “Renaissance man”.
The song is performed by Robert Spencer, accompanied by the prominent guitarist – lutenist Julian Bream.


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the music!

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. • Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
