5.0 out of 5 stars Lively and enjoyable Playford May 22, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Although far too early for dancing if you are a War of 1812 / Regency re-enactor [best if your time period is Jacobean to Restoration England]the music is lively, merry, stimulating and just plain fun to listen too. It also has the only version of Mr Beveridge's Maggot [that was played in both the A&E Pride and Prejudice and the Paltrow Emma films]that I've been able to find. I listen to it all the time. Buy it!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful music March 26, 2001
Format:Audio CD
As another reviewer has mentioned, the tempo is not always optimal for dancing. In addition, some of the tracks seem too short to get a set buzzing. That said, they're a super length for listening...the band is great, and the tune choices are excellent! For those Jane Austen adaptation fans who simply must have their own copy of 'Mr. Beveridge's Maggot,' look no further than this cd!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for listening, so-so for dancing. November 17, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I lead a local English Country dance group, and we use this CD quite a bit, but just for 3 or 4 of the songs. Some of the cuts are not at a good dancing tempo. For example, "Gathering Peasecods" is way too slow. OK for teaching I guess, but its hard to be light on your feet in slow motion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jolly good time. July 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Very well done and representative of some early music. Great for living historians looking to get that "period feel" for the music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful February 18, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Recently I rediscovered some classic 19th century English novels, and their emphasis on country dance music encouraged me to buy this CD. The music is completely delightful. When listening, I feel like I've just stepped into a Jane Austen novel. There is a nice variety of tempos and excellent quality. Even my children pick up my hands and want to dance.

This cd contains Mr Beveridge's Maggot. The song that was playing during the scene from "Pride and Predjudice" where Mr. Darcy and Lizzie dance.
