Top of Guy Fawkes's Pops

4th November 2005 at 00:00
There can be no better way to mark the 400th anniversary of Guy Fawkes's conspiracy than to get hold of a copy of Fortune My Foe. Subtitled "popular music from the period of the Gunpowder Plot", it's a superb compilation.

The airs, dances, jigs, ballads and processional pieces match the dynamically different moods of that perplexing era. The playing of the "York Waits" is of the highest quality. This is an hour of bewitching and informative delight. Fortune My Foe costs pound;13.99 (including pp) from Beautiful Jo Records, PO Box 1039, Oxford OX1 4UA Tel: 01865 249194 Email:
