This suite of instrumental pieces consists of five compositions from the repertoire of the New York Pro Musica Renaissance Band and Wind Ensemble. It is typical of the music played by the "loud consort", consisting of wind instruments- cornetti, sacbuts, and shawms. These were generally performed outdoors or in large concert halls for ceremonial occasions.
