Lucie Skeaping presents a concert given at the 2016 York Early Music Festival by the City Musick, a band featuring flute, lute, cittern, bandora, treble and bass viols.

Lucie Skeaping presents a concert from the 2016 York Early Music Festival, featuring The City Musick - "The Topping Tooters of the Town: the Waits in Shakespeare's London". With music by Anthony Holborne, Clement Woodcock, John Coprario, Thomas Ravenscroft, Richard Allison and John Adson.

"Why these are the city waits, who play every winter's night through the
streets to rouse each lazy drone to family duty. These are the topping tooters
of the town, and have gowns, silver chains, and salaries, for playing
'Lilliburlero' to my Lord Mayor's horse through the city."
(Ned Ward, The London Spy, 1709).
