The City Waites, the British early music ensemble, brings the same scholarly concern for authentic performance practice to "the songs, ballads and dance tunes from the tavern, court and countryside of seventeenth century England," that other groups devote to Palestrina or Monteverdi. The performances are both musically first-rate and full of wild abandon and low humor. All of the group's four members both sing and play a number of instruments, and they are joined here by four additional instrumentalists, creating a full and festive sound.
