Summary

Summary

Splitting its time between the Baltimore Consort and the Merry Companions, as well as their various guest performers, Art of the Bawdy Song is a series of traditional -- some even medieval -- folk songs covering all the major illicit physical pleasures: smoking, drinking, and, especially, sex. The overall tone of the performances isn't quite as lustily exuberant as one might imagine, but there's still plenty of bawdiness to keep things engaging. ~ Steve Huey
