Lively and enjoyable Playford

"Although far too early for dancing if you are a War of 1812 / Regency re-enactor [best if your time period is Jacobean to Restoration England]the music is lively, merry, stimulating and just plain fun to listen too. It also has the only version of Mr Beveridge's Maggot [that was played in both the A&E Pride and Prejudice and the Paltrow Emma films]that I've been able to find. I listen to it all the time. Buy it!!"
Good for listening, so-so for dancing.

"I lead a local English Country dance group, and we use this CD quite a bit, but just for 3 or 4 of the songs. Some of the cuts are not at a good dancing tempo. For example, "Gathering Peasecods" is way too slow. OK for teaching I guess, but its hard to be light on your feet in slow motion."
Delightful Melodies!

"What a wonderful purchase this was! It offers charming music to any occasion - especially themed parties. It's a sophisticated addition to my CD collection. Superb!"
