From the Library: An Early Music Festival

Today’s From The Library takes the form of a fes­ti­val of Ear­ly Music, cov­er­ing the mediæ­val to late Renais­sance peri­ods.

The pro­gramme includes both faith­ful ren­di­tions of music by some of the mas­ters of the field, such as the late David Munrow, and Musi­ca Reser­va­ta, cov­er­ing both sacred and sec­u­lar music (though with an empha­sis on the lat­ter), and some con­tem­po­rary artists who present a live­ly and viva­cious inter­pre­ta­tion of Ear­ly Music, notably bands such as Wol­ge­mut, Mince Pye, Philip Pick­ett & Richard Thomp­son, and a favourite among Radio Riel lis­ten­ers, Corvus Corax.

From the Library is pro­duced by Radio Riel in con­junc­tion with the Cale­don Library in Sec­ond Life, to inform, edu­cate and enter­tain. Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin.
