Lachrimae Antique Pavan (sheet music)
This is the beautiful Lachrimae Antique Pavan by John Dowland (1562-1626) as I play it on YouTube. The Lachrimae pavan was evidently a bona fide 'hit' of its age, around 1604. There are many settings for this piece from Dowland’s hand. Most known are the Consort setting called 'Flow my teares'. I love this music; the sadness, desperation and yet… hope for a better life.
