El Dorado Ensemble performs John Dowland's complete "Lachrimae" collection for 5 viols and lute.  Rarely heard in its entirety, the collection includes the 7 "Lachrimae" pavans, as well as galliards, pavans and almains, the tunes of many of which are familiar, as Dowland used and reused them in lute songs, lute solos and other instrumental works. The concert orchestrations will vary to reflect the different pieces' backgrounds.
