Today we’re presenting a programme of Early Music, primarily from the Renaissance period, and featuring music from many parts of Western Europe. However, there are some lively renditions of a few Mediæval pieces too.
Some, but not all, of the performances attempt to recreate the authentic sound of the pieces at the time they were written, but others bring modern musical sensibilities (and sometimes instrumentation) to bear.
Today’s programme is presented by Elrik Merlin. If you are in the United States or Canada, please click here to launch the Stream Licensing player. To listen from outside North America, click here to start your player .
