The works for viola da gamba of Elizabethan soldier and composer Tobias Hume are wonderfully eccentric, highly entertaining, and often deeply moving, but not often recorded, so new recordings are always welcome. This 2009 Hyperion disc by German gambist Susanne Heinrich may not be the most poetic, soulful Hume recording ever made – that honor would go to the incomparable Jordi Savall – but it is nevertheless a fine addition to the composer's catalog. With her warm but penetrating tone, polished but passionate technique, and acute sensitivity, Heinrich is a first-class player and interpreter, and her performances are wholly sympathetic to the music. Her account of the bleak "I am Melancholy" is as effective as that of the droll "Tickell, tickell," and her reading of the cheerful "Life" is as moving as that of the grim "Deth." Recorded in transparent and present digital sound, this disc deserves to be heard by all admirers of music for viola da gamba.

Review by James Leonard, Allmusic.com

If you enjoyed Susanne Heinrich’s solo Abel album (1/08), you’ll want this release. Hume’s music stands at the opposite end of the period in which solo viol playing flourished in England but offers a comparable level of technical and musical challenge to the performer. Heinrich raises the stakes by using gut strings without silver or copper winding in the lower register (metal-wound strings post-date Hume) – something many players today would find too risky because they speak grudgingly and produce a slightly gruffer sound than wound strings. The rewards for doing so justify the perils: the lowest notes of bass-lines breathe uncannily and blend seamlessly in chords.

This is not the first time a performer has devoted a disc to “Captain Humes Musicall Humors” – Jordi Savall recorded selections in 2004 and several others, Sarah Cunningham (1992) and Vittorio Ghielmi (2004) among them, have included pieces by Hume in albums of English music; Heinrich herself contributed some to Charivari Agréable’s “Queen’s Goodnight” (2002) – but this one offers listeners selections not previously recorded.

Ah, but the music! The melancholy of the opening and closing tracks is bewitching. Here, and elsewhere on the disc, Heinrich dramatically – often poetically – conveys Hume’s deeply personal, seemingly reflective musical utterances. If little is known of his life, the fact that he shared a patron with Shakespeare (the Earl of Pembroke) is enough to realise that in his day his music was taken seriously. Heinrich includes mercurial, conversational pieces that tease the listener (tr 2, 4 and 15) and those that evoke the lute (in “Harke, harke” Hume sought to surpass it with col legno effects). Elsewhere she brilliantly captures his military swagger and bravura (tr 8 and 17), evoking trumpets and drums and a sense of marching into the distance. Bravo!
