..The Fairy Queen and her maides daunced about the garden, singing a Song of six parts, with the musick of an exquisite consort; wherein was the lute, bandora, base-violl, citterne, treble-viol and flute. -from The Honourable Entertainment at Elvetham, anon. 1591
This is another of my favorite albums by The Baltimore Consort, an ensemble that I am so very fond of. Needless to say I rarely have time to post anything these days, thus filling requests is much more difficult without time. Someone asked for more Baltimore Consort recordings a while back and I'm more than happy to oblige; I will, in time, be posting everything they have released anyhow.
I will add information and thoughts about this lovely release, Watkins Ale, as soon as I can find some real time to do so.
