Rosemary and Justin met in 2001 at Portuguese baroque palace called Casa Mateus and they formed an instant musical connection centred around the music of John Dowland. Sorrow Stay brings together the most lachrymose of Dowland’s songs, not intended to make the listener sad, but rather to soothe, calm and ravish the listener unlike any other music known. This album was released on 3 August, 2012 on ABC Classics.
