It takes chutzpah to programme Hank Williams alongside William Lawes.

Harvey Brough's Richard Hawleyish arrangement of "Cold, Cold Heart" for madrigal consort and viols is, like Clara Sanabras's Tiger Lillies-esque setting of Frida Kahlo's "La Vida Callada" aimed at the Late Junction listener. Elsewhere, the 17th-century fantasies, lute songs, dialogues and dances in this half-English, half-Mexican double-album should tickle the fancy of any Early Music purist.
