Songs from the Labyrinth marks Sting's foray into centuries-old music
6 March 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This special from PBS chronicles Sting's playing, performing, and recording the music of one John Dowland, a songwriter and musician from the 16th century. To perform the songs as they sounded then, Sting plays the lute and collaborates with Edin Karamazov, an expert on Dowland's music. We also get biographical information from a couple of historians, David Pinto and Anthony Rooley. And, yes, Sting performs throughout, either for an audience or in a yard somewhere. Near the end, he also gets a chorus with him. While I found most of the special fascinating, I was a little frustrated that I couldn't understand everything Sting was singing perhaps because the English language was slightly different then or maybe I am not too familiar with the songs to really decipher the meanings behind the words or feelings being described. Nevertheless, the special and the music was compelling and maybe I'll get the CD.
