The York Waits were famous musicians from the town of York in England, who also kept night watch over the city, playing their loud instruments at various stations to mark the hours and reassure the citizens that they could sleep, safe from fire, crime or invasion. They have been revived in todays time as performers that duplicate playing style, dress and manner and tour England in concert. Wonderful old lyrics, fun old tunes for lots of combinations of voices, recorders, strings, or whatever you choose. Contents: The Waits, for 4 voices/instruments, A Catch, for 3 voices/instruments, Heres a Health Unto His Majesty, for 3 voices/instruments. 3 scores with lyrics and lines for strings and winds.
