Tudor London was crowded, malodorous, colorful, and tuneful. Its soundscape included trumpet calls, raucous wind bands keeping the times of day, and ballads hawked and bawled out by scurrilous ballad-mongers. Shakespeare and his contemporaries have given us vivid accounts of Elizabethan balladry, which we will recreate—minus fleas and the picking of pockets. Our songs run the gamut:Tragical, comical, historical, tragical-historical, and tragical-comical historical-pastoral!
Drew Minter, voice; Shira Kammen, fiddle; Mark Rimple, cittern and voice; and Mary Springfels, viola da gamba.
