5.0 out of 5 stars Pastime With Good Company June 28, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Shelley Phillips credentials are quite remarkable. She plays harp, recorders, oboe, English horn, and whistle. Not just to dabble, but very well indeed. She is a member of several consorts, appears on an armload of recordings, and directs the Santa Cruz Community Music School. Whew!! And if you take the time to read the liner notes on this album (my favorite) wou will discover she has a far roving ear and eye, and despite a strong fondness for celtic work, is quite capable of performing Faure, Ralph Vaughan Williams, and a few friends as well.
Her chief accompanist is Barry Phillips, who plays enough instruments to make an ensemble between the two. But the cast includes many others, including an appearance by William Coulter. Seriously, if the music making on this album does not satisfy you, there is nothing to be done for it. Phillips wavers back and forth between original instruments and some fairly daring arrangements. Which makes the albums more than just an idle pastime.
Frankly though, this is light music - no distressing airs permitted. Much dance music, and a few things that very well could be. A sunny spirited album that reminds us that our ancestors knew how to have a good time. This is the kind of thing that we used to get together in college and rattle out on the back steps and stairwell. Not so well played (well, some of us played well) but in the spirit of entertainment and edification.
The last thing I expected when starting this review is that I would have an attack of nostalgia, but there it is. Phillips has a knack of drawing out the nature of the music rather than producing academic performances, and avoiding over production as well. This is extremely accessible work - buy all means give it a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delight and a treat October 8, 1998
By strega2
Format:Audio CD
The very talented musician Shelley Phillips delivers a consistently wonderful offering of traditional instrumental tunes, most of Celtic and European origin. She is one of the extremely talented group of musicians who comprise groups like Orison and Northern Lights, and all of their work is a musical feast. This is no exception. A CD to be treasured and listened to often.

By Beth
Format:Audio CD
If you enjoy traditional/baroque folk music of the British Isles, unadorned by vocals, and sparsely orchestrated so that each note shines through, this relatively obscure CD deserves your (rapt) attention. I would compare this to the best of British 16th and 17th Century "roots" music from the likes of The Broadside Band, Hesperus, Chatham Baroque and the Baltimore Consort - which is distinguished company to be in indeed! I also like the fact unlike some compilations that are totally dominated by the works of John Playford, Ms. Philips has chosen here to broaden her offerings to include many other sources (as well as "Jenny Pluck Pears" by Playford). This makes for a CD that improves on repeated listening instead of becoming tedious in its sameness. There is a gentility to the recordings contained in this gem of a CD - even the numerous very upbeat pieces have a certain gentle refinement to them that transports one to imaginary Elizabethan times. Highly recommended!
