Piva - Heigh Ho Holiday  - English Dance and Ballad Music from the Renaissance.

Piva’s first CD showcases popular English dance music and ballad tunes from the late 16th century.  From the lively Hunt’s Up to the still beauty of Callino Casturame, this best selling CD is a must for all fans of renaissance music.  A wide range of instruments are showcased, from curtals, bagpipes and shawms, through to guitar, viol and violin.

“a joyous reclamation of Elizabethan repertoire, Piva are clearly having sheer good fun.” 

“This is a must have album because it contains great tunes played well.
