Tosse Not My Soule counterpoints the polyphonic radiance of English Renaissance madrigal composition with contemporary urban realities.

Three songs from the 16th century by John Dowland are performed by sounds and shapes from modern city life and paint a portrait of its inhabitants emotive states of longing and promise.
