Laydie Louthians Lilte
Scottish and English music of the 17th century

With the political unification of Scotland and England in 1603, it is not surprising that musical relations between the two countries prospered. But the contents of Scotland's first published book of secular music - John Forbes's Cantus Songes and Fancies (Aberdeen, 1662) may at first still seem surprising - English lute songs and ballads from the generation of John Dowland, together with Scottish music probably of an even earlier date. Scottish manuscripts of the period also contain the same old-fashioned vocal repertoire with instrumental pieces with a more Celtic flavour.

Pantagruel present a striking semi-staged performance using copies of original instruments and costumes.
