I've listened to this cd many times. I am still not tired of it. Yes, in a sense the music is coarse, but that's the kind of music it is - lusty, bawdy, and expressive of an era of high spirits. And that's the way these songs are sung. These are essentially 17th century tavern songs and are sung by people who obviously know what they're singing. These songs should be enjoyed with a flask of beer or a jug of wine.

I had this on vinyl years ago and just came across it on CD here. This is not, nor is intended to be, "pretty" music. It's the kind of music that was sung in taverns and ordinaries - as entertaining for the singers as it would have been to the listeners of the time. It's performed on this recording with that same intent in mind. It's pure, unrefined, bawdy fun, and it doesn't have to pretend to be anything else.

Some very entertaining old English songs. The great favorite is track 4 From Saint to Sinner, which is quite bawdy and alot of fun

By A Customer on July 2, 2000
Who could complain about the fabulous tunes published by Playford... wonderful melodies and truly timeless. Unfortunately, here they are performed in a coarse and unmusical way. This "City Waites" ensemble is NOT the same one that recorded the wonderful "Pills to purge melancholy" of Thomas D'Urfey. The singing here is harsh and badly out of tune. There is scant use of instruments to make up for it or cover it up. Of my set of uncounted CDs, this is one of about 3 that I have listened to only a few times- I literally can't sit through it.
