Companion to the book Shakespeare’s Songbook by Ross Duffin
(W.W. Norton 2004)
77 Tracks featuring:
Sopranos – Ellen Hargis & Custer LaRue
Mezzo-Soprano – Judith Malafonte
Tenors – Paul Elliott, William Hite & Aaron Sheehan
Lute, Cittern & Renaissance Guitar – Paul O’Dette
This CD is meant to be used in conjunction with Shakespeare’s Songbook (W.W. Norton, 2004). That book endeavors to present all of the songs and rounds connected to Shakespeare’s plays and includes an audio CD of about half of the items by the same performers as this recording.
This collection fills a long-felt need for Shakespeare enthusiasts.
No such collection has ever before been compiled!
