Where does your music come from?

Our music is 18th century popular music, mostly English, although we do some Scottish and Irish too. Although many of the composers are anonymous,  we also perform music  by composers such as Purcell, Handel and Arne.  There are many groups that perform 18th century music; however, we felt that the more popular side was not covered very much. The music that we perform is very much more on the lighthearted side than highbrow and,  for that reason, many performers reject it. We think it is interesting and entertaining because of, rather than despite that, and we do our best to perform in the spirit of the music.
