Album Notes
The duo Dapper’s Delight, explores the rich repertoire of English popular music from the period 1550-1900, which once straddled the modern classifications of “folk” and “early music” and forms an important part of the texture of our music history. It is precisely the ambiguous nature of this music that Dapper’s Delight exploit, juxtaposing the striking combination of the anglo concertina, which has a long association with folk music, and the recorder, a popular and highly adaptable, classical instrument prior to the mid-eighteenth century. The reduced nature of this instrumentation, and the novelty of natural voices singing ʻseriousʼ music, highlights the vitality of this repertoire and gives a freshness to some well loved classics.
