Johnson, born in 1540, was one of Elizabeth I's "musitians for the three lutes", and the earliest of the lutenist-composers of the Golden Age of English lute music. His widely disseminated works, some of which require considerable virtuosity, were admired and emulated by his most distinguished successor, John Dowland, as well as Byrd, Morley, Farnaby and others. After Dowland, he was the English composer best known abroad, and he was also the father of another composer for the lute, Robert Johnson.
This recital includes Johnson's Pavan to Delight, and music by his contemporaries.
