Review By Colman Morrissey),MUSE,November 2000

"Elizabethan England evokes images of a golden age. This, after all, was the time in history when Sir Walter Raleigh discovered a weed called tobacco and was prepared to lay his prized red cloak on the ground rather than have his sovereign soil her feet in the muck of 16th-century London. It was also the period when Sir Francis Drake took time off from a game of bowls to defeat the Spanish Armada and when the influence of England reached new levels of respect and deference among her neighbours. As always with images of history, however, the reality is much more complex and this disc, of music mostly from the early period of Elizabeth's reign, does convey a sense of the diversity and variety of emotional expression in society in that period.
