Dowland was an English lutenist, singer and composer, a great virtuoso who as a player on the lute was without rival in Europe. In 1598 he was appointed lutenist to Christian IV of Denmark until his return to London in 1606 where he was appointed one of the King's Musicians for the lutes in 1612.
'Lachrymae' ('Plow, my tears") is from Dowland's second of four books of songs,

Born in Bologna, Ferrabosco spent several years in England until 1564 when he found himself in the service of Cardinal Famese in Rome. Ferrabosca escaped back to England where, in 1567 he was accused of the murder of a young foreign musician on his way to court to exhibit his skill. Ferrabosco pledged himself only to serve Queen Elizabeth I from 1569 (thus receiving a lifelong pension). He enetered the service of the Duke of Savoy in 1578 after escaping from England. The queen kept his children hostage, the eldest Alfonso becoming the most important of the Italian musicians living in England in the 16th century. The father died in Bologna

Marini was an Italian violinist and composer. He served at Venice, the Church of Sant Euphemia at Brescia, as the maestro della musica to the Duke of Bavaria at Munich, at Perrara and at the Church of Santa Maria della Scala at Milan. He died in Venice.
