Bawdy Ballads of Old England -17th Century Songs & Dances

THE CITY WAITES
Lucie Skeaping, director


“it is no good having lewd words one cannot hear … so full marks for the City Waites and their swinging dialect style … items are sometimes accompanied, sometimes not, and this nicely provides contrast, but they are made into lively entertainments” (Penguin Guide 3*) “a taste of the broadside ballad culture which pervaded the Restoration … The Maid’s Complaint is a remarkably spontaneous scene, led by soprano Lucie Skeaping complete with a bunch of drunks who join in, late … Good fun but not very clean!” (Gramophone) “good diction allows particular clarity” (MusicWeb)
