In this first of a series, the vocal ensemble Music Ficta chronicle 100 years of music at Kronborg Castle, Shakespeare's Elsinore. The Danish kings Frederik II and Christian IV lived at Kronborg during Denmark's most prosperous period, when guests from abroad enriched it's musical life. This album features the music of one of these visitors, composer John Dowland, interspersing his Lachrimae with songs and lute music. Musica Ficta, based in Copenhagen, is a professional vocal ensemble, founded in 1996 by the composer and conductor Bo Holten. With this group he has realized his vision of a highly flexible ensemble, where the classical Oxbridge early music ideal is combined with the warmth of the Scandinavian choral sound.
