Les Witches

In this disc wild jigs and melancholic songs lead us both into the atmosphere of court and that of taverns. This shows-to those who still deem it necessary the extent to which baroque esthetics are made up, in one movement, of both erudite art and popular art. This recording shows the Witches at their British best!

“Cittern to six-holed pipes, rakish toe-tapping to soigné soulfulness, the splendidly-named mixed consort Les Witches surfs John Playford's iconic 1561 English Dancing Master with masterly gusto.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2016 *****

Buon tempo

Dancing their way across Europe since 1994, Ensemble Buon tempo have established themselves as both, a top-notch Early Music ensemble and masters of authentic interpretation of dance music from the Renaissance to the Rococo. Working in close cooperation with the Ensemble Historischer Tanz Berlin, Ensemble Buon tempo provide an authenticity and verve rarely found in other period instrument performances: this is toe-tapping stuff!

Many of the 'composers' on this recording (Robert d'Aubat Saint-Flour, Raoul-Auger Feuillet, Louis-Guillaume Pécour, Edmund Pemberton, John Playford) were choreographers, arrangers, and publishers of dance music rather than the original composers of the music.
