5.0 out of 5 stars Old christmas returned 21 Nov 2010
Format:Audio CD
Some of the songs on this recording have a pagan or secular origin. They are concerned with the twelve days holiday and the welcome to the New Year.
Other pieces are from the "carol" tradition. The carol originally being a round dance developed over time and encouraged involvement often through repeated chorus.
This programme of music to celebrate the festive season is a collection of popular pieces mainly from the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. Much of the music is from Traditional source. But there are also pieces from Michael Praetorius and Anthony Holborne. And there is one piece from Thomas Ravenscroft.
The whole project reflects music played by bands of the sixteenth century Waits in many European towns and cities. The original York Waits kept watch at night for crime, fire or attack and played to mark the hours. The present day York Waits that perform on this recording re create the atmosphere of those early Christmas celebrations and the sound of those original Waits.
They play on instruments such as Cornett, shawm, bagpipes, cittern, hurdy gurdy, saggbut and recorders.
The recording is Digital and was made in 1992. The performance, the sound engineering and presentation are all of high standard. This is a unique and very exciting recording and it is a delight at Christmas.
For more christmas music I also reccomend Yule Riding
