Nine Daies Wonder
Nine Daies Wonder
In The Society of Strange and Ancient Instruments’ CD, Nine Daies Wonder, you’ll hear music from right across Elizabethan and Jacobean society. Unusual instruments, more familiar to music lovers 400 years ago than those of today, feature in this selection of raucous country dances, rude and moralistic ballads and poignant art songs.

‘There is nothing folksy or artificial about the mixing of strange and ancient; satisfying textures combined with excellent recording quality bring the music vividly to life’
Early Music Today - 5 stars

‘Pieces like The silver Swan, Can she excuse, Sorrow stay and Rest sweet nymphs are unlike most performances, with a freshness that others rarely achieve. The performers are brilliant. Do try it.’
