Notes & Reviews:

This wide-ranging collection of dances and ballads from the time of Queen Elizabeth I features some of Dorian's best-loved artists. The daughter of music-loving Henry VIII, Elizabeth was well schooled in the arts from an early age. An accomplished keyboard player and a devotee of dancing throughout her 45-year reign, the queen personally planned the musical selections played at court during ceremonial occasions. Immerse yourself in the beauty of one of Elizabeth's favorite pursuits!
