A Golden Treasury of Georgian Music



The musical life of Georgian England had three distinct strands running through it - the classical repertoire as performed in the concert hall and fine houses - the lighter, but polite, songs and instrumental music of the pleasure gardens and stage - and the bawdy ballads of tavern and street. This album juxtaposes the three types of music and provides an entertaining picture of the music of urban Georgian life. London Baroque play the music of the concert hall, The Broadside Band perform the songs of the pleasure gardens, and The City Waites give us the low songs.
