The other reviews do not do justice to this excellent CD. This is among the very best of the CDs for those interested in the songs and dances of Shakespeare. Deborah Roberts' version of "O' Mistress Mine.." is best of the many I have heard. For those interested in additional dance tunes from the English Dancing Master (John Playford), I can strongly recommend the Broadside Band's Playford CDs--these are simply the best.

I liked all of the music on the CD but the dances and jigs were the high spirited music I was looking for when I placed my order. Anyone who has been to a traditional Shakespeare festival will appreciate this CD. The only way this CD could have been better is if more dances could have been included in lieu of some of the more somber songs that were not directly associated with Shakespearean plays.

This audio CD is an excellent way to get into the spirit of the Shakespeare writings. The recordings were well-done and the voices exciting to listen to. I purchased this as a gift for a college teacher of Shakespeare classes and she was delighted with the production. What an enhancement to any Shakespeare rendering.

While the singers on this album may not all have the most lovely voices, all the music sounds authentic and is quite lovely to listen to. It contains a wide range of both melancholy and joyful songs. Though all the music on this is well performed, I must say that I especially loved the song 'O Sweet Oliver.'
