English tenor Ian Bostridge and Chinese classical guitarist Xuefei Yang present this selection of works by Dowland, Schubert, Britten and Argento alongside Chinese folk songs. Celebrating the candlelit intimacy and storytelling environment of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse at Shakespeare's Globe, Songs from Our Ancestors merges trajectories of history, music and poetry in a thoughtful and eclectic journey that is personal as well as global. Bostridge sings these most famous of Dowland’s lute songs for the very first time, while Yang contributes her own arrangements of some of the most storied Chinese melodies.
