From the Library: Magnatune Mediæval

Radio Riel’s music today is from the exten­sive library of Mag­natune, an inno­v­a­tive record com­pa­ny on the cut­ting edge of inter­net-based con­tent pro­duc­tion and dis­tri­b­u­tion. Mag­natune, whose mot­to is “We are not evil”, was launched by John Buck­man in mid-2004 and today rep­re­sents a remark­able col­lec­tion of artists from all kinds of gen­res.

Today, we present a wide selec­tion of medi­ae­val music from the files of Radio Riel’s fea­tured label. To find out more about these artists, vis­it www.magnatune.com.

To find out more about Mag­natune, read their infor­ma­tion pages. But above all, lis­ten to the music here on Radio Riel’s Mag­natune pro­grams, and if you like what you hear, sup­port them! Vis­it the site, and buy some of the music you’ve been lis­ten­ing to. There are lots of oth­er lis­ten­ing options on the site too.
