A Golden Treasury of Georgian Music
London Baroque, The Broadside Band, The City Waites

The musical life of Georgian England had three distinct strands running through it - the classical repertoire as performed in the concert hall and fine houses-the lighter, but polite, songs and instrumental music of the pleasure gardens and stage-and the bawdy ballads of tavern and street. This album juxtaposes the three types of music and provides an entertaining picture of the music of urban Georgian life. London Baroque play the music of the concert hall, The Broadside Band perform the songs of the pleasure gardens, and The City Waites give us the low songs.

Amon Ra is the classical division of Saydisc Records and is devoted to authentic performances on original instruments or copies. The unifying feature of all the music in this double album is its calm and tranquil nature. There is still enormous variety within this narrow framework in terms of period of music, instrumentation and style.
