Tubegazing: Sting – Songs from the Labyrinth

Sting: Songs from the Labyrinth (PBS, Great Performances, Feb. 26, 10 p.m.): There are two reasons to tune into Sting's live take on the songs of John Dowland, one of the most popular composers of the Elizabethan era: If you happen to be an early music enthusiast, you'll cheer for the accompanying performance by lute master Edin Karamazov. If you are merely a Sting fan, you will be pleasantly surprised to discover that the singer's familiar, elegant voice still works its magic on your mind and soul, no matter the material or era. Put simply, Sting is one of those stars who could perform the phone book and the world would be a better place for it. Grade: A
