A few years ago, I got a little booklet with a few Civil War era (17th century) songs in it. I left it on the piano, and a few days later wondered what was the strange noise coming from the room... peeped in, there was (then 14 year old) Daughter, playing piano and carolling away at all 34 verses of The Bloody Tragedy of Titus Andronicus, complete with all gory details, to the tune of Fortune My Foe.

I have to check this out if only because my biological father's name was Charles Stuart.

I have read Diana Gabaldon's novels with great interest as she does include a lot of musical references from that era, even including some lyrics. It would be interesting to have this book just to check it against, though I think most of what she includes can be found on Mudcat.:-)

One presumes the first 16 years covered ballads printed in Scotland mainly. I would be interested to know what its sources were. I am very interested in Stuart period ballads but already have Pepys, Roxburgh, Euing, Bagford, Osterley Park and D'Urfey + what's online so I'd need to know that other sources are being used before buying.

Thanks for this, chaps - my husband works in a living history museum here in Wales where it's always 1645, and this will be a useful additional reference tool for them all.

It is fascinating stuff.

Paper Stage is Elizabethan, not Stuart. Fine album, though. Recently re-released by CAMSCO as 2-CD set with excellent notes included (in PDF format).

There will be a review of the book in the next issue of English Dance & Song, written by Greg Butler (of Strawhead, who have sung quite a few songs from this era over the years).

Probably a stupid sassenach question, but what happened in Wales in 1645 that made them stop the clock at that point?
