From the Library: The Early Music Show

Today on Radio Riel we’ll be play­ing a wide selec­tion of Ear­ly Music, with a slight bias towards the High Renais­sance, and even a touch lat­er.

We will be fea­tur­ing sev­er­al artists appear­ing on albums from our friends at Magnatune.com, the online record com­pa­ny whose mot­to is, “We Are Not Evil”. Mag­natune treats their artists and their lis­ten­ers fair­ly and with respect: you can down­load all kinds of dif­fer­ent music for­mats with­out DRM, and you can choose how much you pay for them (there is a sug­gest­ed amount). And, would you believe, artists find they get more roy­al­ties from Mag­natune than they receive from con­ven­tion­al record deals. Mag­natune rep­re­sents the future of the music indus­try, if only the con­ven­tion­al “our cus­tomers and artists are the ene­my” com­pa­nies could see it: high qual­i­ty, afford­able down­loads that are fair to artists and music-lovers alike. If you want to pick up any of the record­ings you hear today, sim­ply vis­it the site and look for the title or artist.

The Mag­natune artists we’ll be fea­tur­ing today include the New York Con­sort of Vio­ls, the Dufay Col­lec­tive, Can­conier, La Pri­mav­era, La Nuo­va Musi­ca, Jeni Melia and Medi­va.

In addi­tion we’ll be hear­ing some High Renais­sance clas­sics from David Munrow, Musi­ca Reser­va­ta and Pif­faro, and there are a few mod­ern inter­pre­ta­tions of ear­ly music styles from Corvus Corax and Qntal to tweak the eardrums a lit­tle. Enjoy!
