Reginald Mobley and Stephen Stubbs Perform Robert Johnson

Absolutely charming. Reginald L. Mobley (countertenor) and Stephen Stubbs (lute) perform Full Fathom Five, composed by Robert Johnson (c.1583–1633) with text by William Shakespeare (The Tempest). This comes via the Pacific MusicWorks on their YouTube. I’ve seen both Mobley and Stubbs perform on numerous occasions via Pacific MusicWorks in small and large ensembles and they are always fantastic. But it’s great to hear two of my favourite performers as a duo. Mobley has exquisite vocal and musical abilities and charming performance presence. Stubbs is a colossal musical figure with equally brilliant skills on the lute, guitar, conducting, and simultaneously conducting while on the lute, theorbo, or harpsichord. He’s won a Grammy for best Opera recording and is a specialist in Baroque opera and song. I can’t say enough good things, check it out.

  1. Really cool Bradford. It is really remarkable when you here Reginald’s voice, you would expect a Baritone!
