Notes & Reviews:

"What a delightfully entertaining recordings! 'Wags' is the operative word here. The texts are fun. The music is fun. And the sheer joy ofperforming this music comes through...The City Waites are four in number. They both sing and play a variety of period instruments...They put on a wild show show--most enjoyable..." -Parsons, ARG

'Splendid, vigorous, animated, hilarious' (Hi Fi News)

'Highly entertaining' (Classical Music)

'Rollicking good fun' (The Cornish Guardian)
