If you need to transform a negative mood into a joyful frolic, enjoy this jovial anthology of top tunes from the 17th century . These exquisitely executed pieces magically transport you to a 300-year old musical event, with an irresistible and beguiling puckishness. The real sensation is soprano Custer LaRue-- quel nom!--who appeallingly dissolves the borders between classical, folk and pop through her heartfelt phrasing and everywoman tone. With musical aplomb, a well-focused sound and teasing vibrato, she charmingly communicates comprehensibly and directly the stories of another universe. This thoroughly enjoyable musical experience is a must have for all types of music lovers. --Barbara Eisner Bayer

Format: Audio CD
The six member Baltimore Consort combines voice, wooden flute, recorder, bagpipes, rebec, lute, viols, cittern and Baroque guitar into a "broken consort" (a group of instruments that are not all the same kind)(obviously) to whip up spirited improvisations of popular Renaissance ballads and dances from England. A "Playford tune" is one that was published by John Playford in 1651 in his musical anthology, "The English Dancing Master". What is particularly wonderful to those familiar with English Country Dancing is to hear soprano Custer La Rue sing some of the ballads related to favorite dance tunes. Especially fun are "The French Report", "The Joviall Broome Man", "The Famous Ratketcher", and "The Beautiful Shepherdess of Arcadia". If you like these ballads, you may also enjoy the Baltimore Consort's "The Art of the Bawdy Song", with guest singers the Merry Companions, as well as the Toronto Consort's album "Mariners and Milkmaids: Ballads and Dances from 17th-Century England".

This collection features some of the most playful songs that the Baltimore Consort have ever recorded. These tunes, published by John Playford in 1651, are like a greatest hits collection from 17th century England. All of these tunes are entertaining. Some of my favorites are: Beggar Boy, A Scots Rant, and The Famous Ratcatcher-featuring typically brilliant singing by Custer LaRue (she is the queen of this kind of music). This is another great album by the Baltimore Consort. Buy it.

As noted by other reviewers, this disc features the Baltimore Consort performing several English dances and ballads associated with by John Playford's published anthology The English Dancing Master. The spirit of the album is decidedly upbeat, with a few plaintive, thoughtful moments, and the arrangements vary, as one might expect from an ensemble that boasts wooden flutes, citterns, viols, lutes and even a bagpipe. Renai-chanteuse Custer LaRue brings her lovely voice to several of the pieces, and it's all another marvelous outing from this group. Indeed, I think this is one of their best.

Purchased for just one piece: A Trip to Kilburn. This is mesmerizing music, beautifully performed. I recommend the entire CD just for A Trip to Kilburn. You will not be disappointed.
