"We no sooner enter'd the house but we heard fiddlers and hautboys, together with a humdrum organ, make such incomparable music that had the harmonious grunting of a hog been added as a bass, the unusualness of the sound could not have render'd it more engaging." The first of two programmes of music and contemporary accounts from the second half of the 17th century of the first public concerts in the western world from
London's rowdy music houses.
