Tunes From the Attic returns to the central repertory of the Baltimore Consort: popular and courtly music from Elizabethan England and Renaissance Scotland, with ballads, airs, and country dances which grew from those traditions over the following centuries. All these excellent tunes stimulate our collective musical imagination and continue to inhabit our brains long after we have packed up our instruments and gone home. Like our predecessors four hundred years ago, we are inspired to make "art" of these infectious melodies. Every family has an attic - a place to re-discover items no longer in use but treasured nonetheless.
