Album Notes
Marching under the unfurling burlap banner of the West Coast folk and renaissance music movement, The Merry Wives of Windsor are delighted to present our second CD, Here's to the Men. Founded in 2002, MWOW has amassed an impressive body of traditional and original folk music.

From their rollicking, hard-hitting, bawdy numbers to their soulful and melancholy ballads, these ladies have captivated audiences wherever they perform.

These ten vocalists sing in three- and four-part harmonies, accompanied by guitar, Irish bouzouki, mandolin, sackbut, recorder, fiddle and bodhran. They have developed a remarkably modern sound, yet still remain true to their inspirational roots in folk music.

Love this disc and The Wives. Have nearly worn out my copy of their first albumn, "Our Revels Now Begin", and I'm well on my way to wearing out this one, too. Keep up the great work ladies!

WOW is right!
This is a great CD! I bought it at a show MWOW did and haven't been able to stop listening to it. The music is wonderful and the parts fit together seamlessly. Its nice to hear traditional songs redone so well and to hear new original pieces as well. I think what I am most impressed with is how good these girls sound live! They sound just as good as their CD during stage shows! Rock on ladies!

LOL Great
What to say I had to have them all...........I ment the CD's the wife will not let me try for anything else.


A strong and charismatic blend of voices
This CD is filled with strong and charismatic voices that invite, seduce, and attack their way through beautfully produced Renaissance songs. These ladies can handle dramatic ballads (Prickle Holly Bush), playful upbeat tunes (Old Daddy Fox), and rollicking singalongs (Bog Down in the Valley-O) with harmonies as tight and arrangements as appealing as any put on disc. An excellent CD for fans of Renaissance music and vocal groups.


Very Faire-Worthy indeed!!!! Great Music...
Love the CD Here's to the Men. That song "Stitch" cracks me up every time!!Great rythym and harmony...outstanding timing. Funny lyrics and uplifting tunes. Keep it up , girls!!
