A Song of Farewell to 2011 – free classical download #4

It’s Paul McCreesh and the Gabrieli Consort today, folks.

The opening track – please refer back for visual coherence to free classical download #2 – is called ‘Drop, Drop, Slow Tears’  and it’s by Orlando Gibbons (1583-1625), arranged Percy Dearmer (1867-1936).

It from a forthcoming album  ‘A Song of Farewell: Music of Mourning & Consolation’, due for release on Winged Lion (distributed by Signum) in March 2012. If you’re worried it’s a bit of a downer, listen up. Download here.

  • Dear Norman, Thanks for featuring the Gabrieli Consort –I have heard of them but not heard them. The GIbbons is sublime and the balance and blend of the ensemble impeccable. The recording is also beautifully done–can’t wait to pick this up when it come out. Best regards and wishes for the New Year. Bob
