Extra Information Inspired by Jacob van Eyck’s variations on John Dowland’s ‘Flow My Tears’ (‘Lacrimæ’), a lute song widely known at the time of its composition and thereafter, this fantasy is most effectively presented via the melancholy tones of the tenor recorder. However, when performing on F recorders, the player may transpose to g minor simply by using C fingerings.
