A Circle in the Water

Robert Burton (1577-1640) published at the beggining of the chiaroscuro century his work “The Anatomy of Melancholy” (1621). In this work melancholy appears as the fundamental aspect of the mystical experience for the first time. Capella de Ministrers proposes a tour through first half of the 16th Century music linked to melancholic feeling. An English music repertoire with Dowland, Hume, Corkine and anonymous pieces.

This CD is part of the film’s soundtrack: “El cercle en l’aigua” directed by Vicent Monsonís (Monso) based on the play “La Estancia” by Chema Cardeña.
