"The Mellstock Band and Choir attempt to sing and play according to what may have been common in the 18th and 19th centuries, but obviously we can never be sure. Maddy Prior and The Carnival Band perform in the style of folk music...This is a most fascinating disc…. Both lovers of traditional hymns and lovers of (English) folk music will enjoy it."
