Main: The Early Music Show

Today on our Main Stream, tune in for a day of Ear­ly Music per­for­mances. The music comes pri­mar­i­ly from the Renais­sance peri­od, and fea­tures pieces from many parts of West­ern Europe. How­ev­er, there are some ren­di­tions of a few Mediæ­val pieces too — and some ideas about how even ear­li­er music might have sound­ed. Many of the per­for­mances use orig­i­nal instru­ments and attempt to recre­ate the authen­tic sound of the pieces at the time they were writ­ten. There are also some rous­ing mod­ern interpretations.

Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin. Please click here to start your play­er if your brows­er is set up to pass streams to an exter­nal player. 

You can also lis­ten via TuneIn out­side the UK, either with their web site or via the TuneIn App, or on Online Radio Box — with a com­plete playlist for the past sev­en days.
