Divine Madness


“Flow, my tears”, as John Dowland has it in his timeless song. His musical tears became the signature of an entire generation of melancholics. The Elizabethan cult of melancholy has a surprising counterpart in Arabic Sufism. The ensemble Imago Mundi interlaces bittersweet lute songs with refined Sufic chants and the sensual sounds of the oud.
