Description
Alternating songs, chamber music, and spoken passages, the ensemble Echo du Danube attempts to re-create a masque—an evening-long entertainment that was popular during the baroque period in England. Soprano Miriam Allan's crystalline voice is featured on John Dowland's "Fine knacks for ladies," Richard Edwards's "When griping grief," and John Maynard's "A Wonder: The Wife," while instrumental selections include Matthew Locke's "Symphony of Bird Calls," Jean La Felle's "Sarabande"; Rob Wyn Jones narrates William Shakespeare's prologue to Henry V and "Ay, but thou talk'st." The enclosed booklet includes the lyrics and texts, as well as a discussion of this fascinating aspect of English culture.

"The poems were published by Sir John Davies in 1608 and set to music in 1611. Each poem is a first-person description of a different walk of life, the virtuous attributes of each individual satirizing the general run of their peers who fail to live up to the ideal. Eight of the 12 songs are distributed through this program, singled out in boldface in the list of contents…. The singing and playing are very well executed."—American Record Guide
