A timely revival of marvellous music by a late 16th-century English composer too often neglected, this collection of eighteen dances for wind and string ensembles comes from from a rich collection of instrumental pieces published in 1599. The reissue – making its first international appearance on CD – contains the fascinating original L’Oiseau-Lyre booklet notes by Anthony Rooley and Trevor Jones as well as a new introduction written by Anthony Rooley.
