Sleeve Notes for Mr Kyneston's Famous Dance Vol1 by Belshazzar's Feast

Mr Kyneston's Famous Dance Vol1Colourful interpretation of English early eighteenth-century dance tunes from the Kynaston Collection on fiddle, oboe and accordion. Played at dance tempo.


For those unfortunate enough never to have heard Belshazzars Feast, one can only make the general comment that musicianship of this grade is only too rare. The CD regally bounces along for a full hour, and is relaxedly exhilarating throughout. If you play or like listening to dance music, this album is an object lesson. If you like the dancing, you will probably never have heard it played this well.
