This album (CD now) is a rare treat - the voices of these two gifted singers compliment each other beautifully in selections throughout - The songs are rich and subtle and almost every one blends gracefully into the next - The instruments never overwhelm the voices but are wonderfully quirky and varied and give the album its medieval sort of flair- I believe (and listeners out there please correct me if I'm wrong) Maddy Prior and June Tabor have only done two albums together - I bought this one first, loved it, backed up and bought the first album, and now hope mightily for a third someday.

This follow-up album to their first joint effort "Silly Sisters" found Tabor and Prior still in fine voice after the ten year plus gap. I found the material just a bit weaker this time, however (despite ranging well out of the folk tradition), and the singers perhaps a little less involved. The instrumental backing on this album is quite different from the first album, moreover, with more of a 'New Age' feel to it, in part due to the very interesting guitar work of Dan Ar Braz. If you liked the first album, you'll probably like this one as well--but be forewarned: the lp version of this title was *very* short, timewise (one side being hardly over ten minutes in length), and the addition of two new cuts only brings the project up to being describable as "short." Perhaps someone might contemplate releasing *both* Silly Sister projects on one cd?--there's room.

Looking this up, just out of curiosity, I was surprised by the small number of reviews. I knew it was no commercial blockbuster, but fans of both traditional and contemporary folk music NEED to hear this! I love both Maddy Prior and June Tabor, and have sought out almost all of their work, together and separately, and with their various other bands and side projects. Of the two, I prefer Tabor as a solo artist. Prior is best, in my opinion, on the first several albums with Steeleye Span, but she has some really good solo records as well (especially CHANGING WINDS and FLESH & BLOOD). Together, these women can't be beat. It's just too bad there are so few releases by Silly Sisters (their name as a duo). NO MORE TO THE DANCE is a real pleasure, despite a slightly weak opener. For those who know SILLY SISTERS, their first project together, but not this much later follow-up, I urge you to seek it out. It is different; less traditional and more atmospheric. I happen to like it better, although both albums come highly recommended. My favorites are the bouncy "Hedger and Ditcher," and the equally melodic "Almost Every Circumstance," with their memorable tunes and witty lyrics. The most beautiful song is a hypnotic "Fine Horseman." The last two tracks consist of a solo each by June and Maddy, and, though nice, are not really needed. The original cassette tape, that I first owned, did not include these numbers, and I don't think they were on the LP, either, so I guess they were added exclusively for the CD reissue to add length to a rather short program. If you just can't get enough of the Silly Sisters, love June Tabor, and are willing to shell out the bucks, there are a handful of previously unreleased Prior/Tabor duets on June's excellent 4-CD boxed set, ALWAYS.

I bought June Tabor and Maddy Priors' first album together 'Silly Sisters'[ASIN:B0000086FC Silly Sisters]way back in the late '70's and,
30 years later, I still dance around the kitchen and sing along to it's
rustic tunes and earthy lyrics. So when I saw 'No More to the Dance' for sale, produced over 10 years after 'Silly Sisters',I bought it in the expectation that it would be more of the same. However, I should have paid
more attention to the title!This is a far more sombre and sophisticated
work. Parts of it recall 'Gaudete' by Steeleye Span (also Maddy Prior
singing), other parts the heavy tragic ballads from June Tabor's solo work. It's relaxing music to listen to in winter next to the fireplace!
