Watkins Ale: Music of the English Renaissance This charming collection Renaissance songs and dance tunes followed on the heels of a similar collection of Scottish music from the same period (On the Banks of Helicon), and was itself followed some years later by The Mad Buckgoat, which focused on early music in Ireland. Of the three albums, the Scottish one is the best, but Watkins Ale is a close second. The program draws on material both familiar ("There Were Three Ravens," "Green Sleeves") and obscure, and juxtaposes melancholy consort music by John Dowland and Thomas Morley with dances and bawdy tunes. The playing of the Baltimore Consort is exquisite, as always, with special recognition due to flutist Chris Norman and gamba player Mary Anne Ballard. While they spend most of their time playing gently and elegantly, this is a group that also knows how to rock out when the music calls for it. The music calls for it a bit less frequently on Watkins Ale than it did on Banks of Helicon, but the program includes a nicely varied array of moods and textures. Highly recommended.
