 Catalogue  O Sweet Woods - Irish and Scottish airs
O Sweet Woods - Irish and Scottish airs

The Scottish and Irish airs and instrumental pieces chosen for this new sampler were selected from previous ATMA recordings by singers Meredith Hall, Matthew White, and Michael Slattery, along with ensembles La Nef and Skye Consort.

The lyrics of traditional Scottish and Irish songs from the 17th and 18th centuries are closely related to the social life of the time, and several airs tell the stories of love between lads and lassies. Tenor Michael Slattery sings John Dowland’s songs with an Irish flavor, while soprano Meredith Hall and countertenor Matthew White perform Scottish music from the era of the famous Killiecrankie battle.

Directed by Sylvain Bergeron and Matthew White respectively, the musicians of La Nef and the Skye Consort draw inspiration from both early and traditional music. They collaborate with musicians and artists from a wide range of disciplines, depending on the repertoire.
