Music of Caledon: A Renaissance Fayre

As part of Cale­don’s SL5B cel­e­bra­tions, Radio Riel con­tin­ues its series of pro­grammes of The Music of Cale­don with a day of Renais­sance and Ear­ly Music — focus­ing pri­mar­i­ly on live­ly and excit­ing mod­ern inter­pre­ta­tions, such as you might find at a Renais­sance Fayre today, rather than more tra­di­tion­al pre­sen­ta­tions. As a result, today’s show con­sists of fair­ly noisy and glee­ful per­for­mances by mod­ern artists in which, from time to time, tra­di­tion­al instru­men­ta­tion is aug­ment­ed, or some­times replaced, by mod­ern instru­ments. The result is a selec­tion of musi­cal fun and frol­ics from artists includ­ing Philip Pick­ett & Richard Thomp­son, Ash­ley Hutch­ings, Mince Pye, Wol­ge­mut, Gryphon, Cir­cu­lus, and of course Corvus Corax (though we’ll hold off on the dance remix­es on this occa­sion).

Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin and replaces the pre­vi­ous­ly adver­tised pro­gramme from Mag­natune, which will now be broad­cast on Wednes­day, pre­sent­ed by Edwina Heron.

Rocked-up Renais­sance music is an ide­al accom­pa­ni­ment to the steampunk/Victorian world of the Inde­pen­dent State of Cale­don. Tune in as you explore the Cale­don SL5B exhib­it at http://slurl.com/secondlife/Second%20Life%20Birthday, sim­ply by press­ing Play on your embed­ded music play­er. The pro­gramme can also be heard by tun­ing in direct­ly to our Main Stream, http://music.radioriel.org/.
