Catalogue Number: 02M103
Label: Ars Musici
Description: 17 songs of mostly uncertain parentage, dating from the German Peasants' War (1524-25), Thirty Years War (1618-48) and the 1848 Revolutions, performed by an ensemble of soprano, period harp, chamber organ, fiddle, shawm, crumhorns, hurdy-gurdy, bagpipes, organistrum, bombarde, flutes, lute, guitar and percussion. German-only texts, but if you're somewhat proficient, you can easily enjoy these musical expressions of political and personal outrage by the German underclasses. Freiburger Spielleyt.
