Liner notes about Jan Akkerman
A medieval church hall, solid on its stone floors, an ancient stringed instrument, the music of a period long forgotten, and a respect which can only be imagined when listening to these two pieces - "Pavan" and "Gaillard".
Jan Akkerman has long since established himself in the world of music, but his passion for his influence of time (in this case performing both pieces on the lute) and art make manifest a window to another world, another era, to ones ears.


Tracks: Pavan (Akkerman)
