Editors’ Notes A charismatic Norwegian violinist and his band of doughty period players, Barokksolistene, pay a musical visit to a 17th-century London alehouse. The result is an infectious brew that folds time back on itself. Popular songs of the day return to vivid life in the hands of these Scandinavian musicians who give the impression that they’re making it up on the spot—and having a lot of fun doing so. The atmosphere of the alehouse—noisy, beer-soaked, argumentative, flirtatious, and a whole lot more—is wonderfully evoked on this fun-filled album.
