The Cries of London

Harmonia Mundi
Theatre of Voices, Fretwork, Paul Hillier

Theatre of Voices and Fretwork are heard in a selection of the Cries of London, in which music for viol consort is overlaid - sometimes comically, sometimes poignantly - with the raucous voices of 16th-century London's street-vendors, mendicants, tradesmen and river-taxis.
