A collection of songs and dances by Dowland, East and Holborne performed by two of the most eminent of British early-music groups in the late-1960s: Musica Reservata and the Purcell Consort of Voices.

The performance of contrapuntal vocal music, with viols doubling the voices, stems from a long European tradition and in several of the songs on this record, strings are used in this way. Part of an on-going mini-series on Eloquence, 'The Tudors' presents a series of recordings of the music of this dynasty.

Musica Reservata’s … vitality brings a great deal of early Renaissance music to life […] All the madrigals are thoroughly enjoyable. […] The sound is excellent.’ - Gramophone, August 1968
