David McGuinness and his virtuoso band of early musickers explore the life and works of Tobias Hume.

This recording draws on the two books of music Hume published in his lifetime, and ranges from capricious fragments of tunes that celebrate the simple joy of playing the viol, to potent moments of substantial emotional depth.

Concerto Caledonia is Scotland's foremost early music group, bringing to life the classical and traditional music of the nation s history.

This is their fifth recording on Delphian label. They appear regularly on BBC Radio 3, the group has also been broadcast on Radios 1, 2, and 4 including live collaborations at the Edinburgh International Festival.

The booklet includes informative programme notes, and a list of the selected pieces with their numbers in the two books of 1605 and 1607.
