Sono Luminus



Ronn McFarlane lute
Robert Aubrey Davis spoken word

DSL-92105 Cover

Dorian Sono Luminus presents Blame Not my Lute, the latest release from GRAMMY® nominated lutenist, Ronn McFarlane, accompanied in voice by internationally known television and radio personality Robert Aubrey Davis.

McFarlane and Davis artfully match poetry and theater works about the lute to the finest lute music taken from the same Elizabethan and Jacobean era.   Originally presented as a live performance, Blame Not my Lute is a masterful mix of lilting verse by Shakespeare and Sir John Davies and enchanting lute music of Dowland.
