4.0 out of 5 stars can be repetitious, but still good, August 1, 2004
By 
This review is from: The Ladyes Delight (Audio CD)
I really like this CD. My favorite tracks are those with the singing of Custer La Rue, like Balow and Yonder Comes a Courteous Knight... unfortunately most of the CD is instrumental. Still good though.

Anyway I'm writing this review because since buying this CD, which was the first album I bought with music performed by the Baltimore Consort, I've since bought several more. Like Watkins Ale, On the Banks of the Helicon, La Rocque and Roll, etc. And it is very obvious that the Baltimore Consort is the performing group on each CD. They have a very distinctive sound, with high pitched flutes and Italian sounding stringed instruments (I'm really no expert on the instruments here!). And very similar tunes.

The part that bothers me is that on all of these CDs, the sound can get very, very, repetative. Some of the tunes and songs are the same on different CD's, and some just sound totally alike. Now, this may not bother many people, but when I buy a new CD I like it to actually be NEW material.

So this CD, the first one I bought, is actually my least favorite of all the group. Don't get me wrong, it's still a fantastic CD. But if you already own a number of the Baltimore Consort's CD's and you're looking for a new sound, I hardly think you'll find it here. If you are new to the performers altogether, I'd recommend "Watkins Ale" and "La Rocque and Roll" over this, for sure.
