Format: Audio CD
I found the musicians on the recording to be quite good and the lyrics to the songs are extremely funny. However, the singer seems someone more accustomed to opera or madrigals then to bawdy songs. She is a wonderful singer, but seems ill-suited to this type of music. I find the combination of her voice with these lyrics to be un unpleasant one. I am unable to listen to more the 2 or 3 songs at a time unless I am putting it on as purely background music and ignore the lyrics completely, and since the purpose of a CD of "bawdy" songs is usually the humorous lyrics, I found this recording to be a bit of a waste.

This disc of bawdy songs of Thomas D'Urfey is truly charming and thought provoking. Soprano Rosa Lamoreaux creates unique characters for each piece, one a frightened inexperienced young girl, another a dejected lady upset her man would rather go to war than bed her. In the title track she portrays a woman proud to have maintained her virginity, while other women have sacrificed theirs. The instrumental tracks display the virtuosity of the rest of the ensemble - Tina Chancey, Scott Reiss and Grant Herried - in fun, expansive and sometimes explosive dances and suites. Highly recommended to lovers of all sorts of music, not just classical.

This CD is well done and very enjoyable. It seems every generation of adults thinks the music of the current youth generation is decadent,improper,rude and such. These tunes from the 1600s and 1700s prove there has been rudeness,sex and fart joke around for a long time.
