Elizabethan composer Antony Holborne wrote music that was very much of its time, a fact encapsulated in his collection of dances entitled Pavans, Galliards, Almains and Other Short Aeirs (London, 1599). Among the many pieces found the collection is a consort pavan, “Image of Melacholly,” notable for achieving just as its title implies—melancholy—an aesthetic not only common during the period but fashionable, as well.

Here’s American lutenist Lee Santana performing a solo lute arrangement of Holborne’s “Image of Melacholly” (live concert, Bremen, Germany, 8/2009).
