John Dowland enjoyed great fame during his lifetime as a composer and lutenist. He traveled widely for study and employment, but most of all longed to be home, in Queen Elizabeth’s England. He yearned for the security and honor of a position at her court, but it was denied him. Only late in life, after the Queen’s death, did he receive an appointment as lutenist under King James I. These songs, many of which elevate Elizabeth to Goddess-like status, are Dowland’s legacy of suffering and platonic love.
