Notes and Editorial Reviews

This project is a continuation of research into those 17th century English songs whose lyrics look at life from a female viewpoint, exploring a woman`s feelings and experiences. Through this collection we share a few moments in the lives of some imaginary women; they invite us to listen to their songs - once popular, now forgotten; to hear their stories - not so very different from those of today`s TV characters; to share their secrets - the secrets of all women in all ages; and to enter their world, where we may well find reflections of ourselves and hear echoes of the songs of our own hearts. Beautifully sung by Evelyn Tubb, this disc is a great find for all music lovers interested in the development of English vocal music.
