Synopsis

Product Description
This venture into Scottish early music is a first for Temple Records - the label known mainly for its emphasis on traditional Scottish music. It is also the recording debut for The Rowallan Consort. Formed in 1994 by Robert Phillips and William Taylor, they uniquely combine the sound of the lute and the wire-strung harp (clarsach) to beautiful effect. With guest singers Mhairi Lawson and Paul Rendall, they have researched and perform songs and music dating from 1400-1700.

Early Scottish Music Lovers, It's Here!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"So folksy, so smooth, so pleasant. All those who have and enjoy On the Banks of the Helicon by the Baltimore Consort will certainly want this also. A few songs are on both recordings, but you may enjoy, like I do, comparing and contrasting the different renditions. I find the Baltimore Consort brings out the actual beauty of the music better, while this recording probably is closer to the actual way this popular Scottish music was sung at its time."
