This is my attempt at John Dowlands's Semper Dowland Semper Dolens played on my F/C Jeffries anglo - still all a bit rough around the edges and could do with some variation in the repeats, but I'm quite pleased with it for now. Not sure I'd ever feel comfortable about performing it though, for fear there might be a lute player lurking, but I'm a bit too close to it, to be totally objective and decide if the anglo brings anything to the party? Like Mille regretz, it fits nicely under the fingers of an anglo, with many reverses necessitating the same or conveniently located buttons, but you do need an instrument with more than 30 buttons. I used a keyboard transcription of the lute tablature, rather than the 5-part viol arrangement. As ever, any comments and ideas gratefully received. Adrian
