Lusty Broadside Ballads & Playford Dances of 17th Century England

City Waites
directed by
Lucie Skeaping

“nearly flawless: singing is not flashy, but genuinely well executed … playing is solid and infectious … songs are well selected and intelligently ordered – as if it could have been plucked from a tavern 350 years ago …. Throughout, there is an infectious joy expressed in the four-part harmonies. There are songs here that make the listener want to jump and dance a merry jig” (MusicWeb)

“City Waites give us a taste of the broadside ballad culture which pervaded the Restoration years … and instrumental numbers from well-known anthologies like Playford’s Dancing Master … whilst other numbers have been dredged up straight from the 17th-century gutter” (Gramophone)
