The Count and The Duke: A Renaissance Bid Band

With a band of 20 musicians, The City Musick presents a homage to the iconic recordings made by David Munrow in the 1970s, but with a modern twist. The band brings together consorts of recorders, strings, shawms, crumhorns, racketts, dulcians, bagpipes, hurdy-gurdy, cornetts, sackbuts, keyboards, lutes and percussion to create a remarkable gathering of period instruments that delights in the joy and richness of Renaissance instrumental sounds and dance styles, from sombre almains and pavans to the effervescence of bransles, galliards and ciacconas, all arranged from the publications of Arbeau, Susato, Praetorius, Holborne and others.
