Stuart Age Music (CD)

Current Stock:
Sirinu: Sarah Stowe, Jon Banks, Henry Stobart, Matthew Spring

This successful re-enactment ensemble brings “music from troubled times” – the arrival of the Scottish Kings, Catholicism and civil war. “Tunes from Troubled Times” brings to you songs and dances from the era of the Suart Monarchs; a period of bloody civil war, colourful kings and the lust for life of the common people.  Songs and dances are included, from the spectacular court masques, harp music from the Scottish Castles and folk music for bagpipes, hurdy-gurdy, and pipe and tabor from the village green.  Sirinu round off their recording with broadside ballads – topical stories sold in markets and fairs which were the tabloids of the age.
