Notes and Editorial Reviews

Selections recorded August 11-13, 1997 and January 28, 1998.
One of the lesser-known facts about Henry VIII of England is his enthusiasm and sincere passion for music. His musical interests range beyond mere court entertainment, including instrument collections and composition as well. ALL GOODLY SPORTS--THE COMPLETE MUSIC OF HENRY VIII recreates the sound-world of Henry's court, alternating accompanied vocal music with purely instrumental works.
The liner notes are rich in historical background regarding the compositional style, the instruments used, and the musical sources, creating a vivid picture of the musical life of Henry's court. Sirinu, known as both performers and musicologists, have created a revealing look at the
Read more sophistication of Henry's revels. The performances are authentic and educational, creating piquant sounds that are evocative of an unfamiliar world, an atmosphere rich with poignancies that confront and confound our simplistic stereotypes of the debauched court life of this monarch.
