Reviews

'An auspicious launch to a project that will probably have no real competiton for years to come; I recommend it heartily' (Fanfare, USA)

'An exceptional recording with consummate singing and playing which is worthy of pride of place in any vocal collection' (CDReview)
Printed in 1681 in the third book of Playford’s Choice Ayres and Songs, in the ironic little poem ‘How I sigh’ the lady sighs as she thinks of her faithless lover, but she will put up with his infidelities and falsehoods for the sake of their lovemaking.
