John Playford's Secret Ball by Belshazzar's Feast

Summary

This album is a celebration of the 350th anniversary of the first edition of John Playfords The English Dancing Master. Most of the tunes are from this edition and there are also a few corkers from later editions. Belshazzars Feast consists of virtuoso accordion player, Paul Hutchinson, formerly of the Old Pull and Push Band, and the talented classically trained singer and multi-instrumentalist, Paul Sartin. Belshazzars are joined by bassoon, trumpet and English concertina, providing an amazingly rich, subtle and varied tapestry of musical textures and arrangements
