This release by the Baltimore Consort is a real treat for both Celtic and Renaissance music lovers! These are some of the best improvisers in the business. Combining wind and stringed instruments of the Renaissance into an English ¿broken consort¿, these virtuoso musicians interpret old tunes for a new audience, offering delightful melodies, blown, bowed and sung, over sprightly plucked accompaniments. Their sound is distinctly their own: Renaissance-based, but with liberal touches of folk, bluegrass and even a bit of modern jazz. On this recording you¿ll hear Irish tunes both spirited and wistful, which were gathered together in published collections from 1724 through 1909. Chris Norman¿s inventiveness on wooden flute, whistles, bagpipes and bodhran gives an especially Celtic flavor to the renditions. The Baltimore Consort has recorded many CDs for the Dorian label, and all of them are terrific, but this one is my favorite. It¿s not to be missed! Try also ¿A Trip to Killburn: Playford Tunes and their Ballads¿ for early hits from the English dance scene.
