Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Witches recreate the tonal colours that we see in Brueghel's country fairs, weddings and village feasts.

Diapason D'or
In Nobody's Jig, the Witches had explored the English country dance repertoire found in the notebooks published by John Playford as from 1650, which had been hugely successful as we know. For this new release, Alpha asked the Witches to work on Susanne van Soldt's famous manuscript of the end of the 16th century, comprising dances, songs and psalms adapted to the virginal or the harpsichord. Aged 16 when she noted in this copybook the pieces she probably enjoyed playing at home, Susanne was a young protestant who had
Read more to leave Flanders for England with her family at this time of raging religious conflict between Christians. The majority of pieces in the manuscript are reductions for the keyboard. Contrary to what is usually the case, the Witches had therefore to imagine, on the basis of these reductions, the 'original' versions for instrumental ensembles and hence recreate the tonal colours that we see in Brueghel's country fairs, weddings and village feasts. Let's get up and dance!
