Elizabethan Street Songs CD


A raw, rollicking, elemental and sometimes tender collection of Elizabethan street songs. A perfect introduction to early music, accessible and entertaining whilst being performed on period instruments by some of the UK's finest early musicians. The disc uses modern studio techniques to capture the earthy atmosphere of 16th and 17th century street life that spans Elizabethan songs from the alehouse to the whore-house. An authentic collection of music played by early music band Tarleton's Jig.

Created exclusively for Shakespeare’s Globe
