Oh Dowland, Where is thy Sting?

Jessica Duchen has already written thoroughly on the new Sting album of Dowland songs. But I thought I'd provide other resources for information on it. There is a story on NPR, a long interview on CBS Sunday Morning, and Sting even played on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. Musicologists on the AMS list have been pointing out the pedagogical possibilities, giving opportunities to discuss crossover and/or performance practice (especially HIP). While I'm not crazy about Sting's voice (he has odd vowel sounds sometimes) I really enjoyed the passion both Sting and Edin Karamazov showed when performing on the CBS interview. I'm still debating whether to get the CD or not.
