John Dowland (1562 – 1626) was a lutenist and singer in the Renaissance Period. The lute was a stringed instrument, most closely related to our guitar. He wrote quite a lot of music that is still played and sung by guitarists and singers today. Although his music was written for stringed instruments in general, many arrangers have adapted his works for wind instruments.

These 3 pieces come from Dowland's "Third and Last Booke of Songs or Aires," which was published in 1603. Because these songs were written for the voice, I've included the lyrics so you'll know what each song is about. The lyrics are written as Downland wrote them. I have left them in score form, since they are short.

These arrangements are for Clarinet Quartet: 4 Bb or 3 Bb and alto.

The 3 songs included in this collection are:
     It Was a Time When Silly Bees Could Speak
     The Lowest Trees Have Tops
     What Poor Astronomers Are They
