The City Musick

The Count and The Duke

A Renaissance Big Band Tribute to David Munrow

Stour Music Festival
The Count and The Duke

Featuring a remarkable band of twenty musicians, The City Musick present a concert at the Stour Festival of the most exhilarating dance and instrumental music of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Conceived as an homage to the iconic recordings made by David Munrow in the 1970s, but also with a modern twist, the dance band features consorts of recorders, strings, shawms, crumhorns, racketts, dulcians, bagpipes, hurdy-gurdy, cornetts, sackbuts, keyboards, lutes, and percussion.

This remarkable gathering of period instruments delights in the joy and richness of renaissance instrumental sounds and styles, from sombre almains and pavans, to the effervescence of bransles, galliards and ciacconas, arranged from the publications of Arbeau, Susato, Praetorius, Holborne, and others.
